Road Bans

2019 Spring Road Bans

March 18 to June 3, 2019

These dates are subject to change based on weather and road conditions. Updates will be posted here as necessary.

During the ban period, the following restrictions apply to commercial and heavy vehicles:

  • 90% on paved and gravel roads
  • 75% on chip-sealed and oil-surfaced roads
  • 50% on roads where conditions warrant

Road bans help extend the life span of the County’s roads, making them safer for motorists and reducing road repair costs. Bans are periodically needed during times of construction and maintenance, and annually during the spring thaw when frost movement can damage roads more easily.

County enforcement officials enforce road ban compliance via spot checks carried out across the County. Passenger and recreational vehicles are exempt from road bans.
