Roughly 90% of Lac Ste. Anne County's 2033 kilometers of roadways are gravel roads. As such, the Public Works department continually strives to secure equipment, aggregate resources and crews for current and future road maintenance. Each season, County crews maintain close to 500 kilometers of gravel road.
