Managing and Mitigating Infrastructure Strain
Lac Ste. Anne County is responsible for the preservation and maintenance of all municipal roads, highways and bridges within Lac Ste. Anne County which are under the direction, control and management of the County. A very important part of this responsibility is the protection of roadways during the spring thaw. This time of year can create serious structural damage to roads and bridges if appropriate measures are not taken.
When a road ban occurs, signs indicating the allowed axle percentages are posted on all oiled and paved roadways. Road ban signage is not posted on gravel roads; however, all roads will be monitored and road bans enforced by Lac Ste. Anne County Enforcement Services to ensure compliance.
In conjunction with the road ban, please note that Lac Ste. Anne County, North 43 Lagoon Commission, and Darwell Lagoon Commission are implementing a wastewater hauler rate decrease. The rate will be reduced by 50% from $75.00 per legal load to $37.50 per legal load, or from $5.50 to $2.75 per meter cubed, until Lac Ste. Anne County spring road bans are lifted.
Motorists are thanked for their adherence to the new road restrictions.
