Recently in corresponding with our neighboring municipalities, we have learned that some have annual set dates for when road bans come into effect and when they come off. By having these set dates it allows contractors and residents alike to plan hauling events better, knowing the time frame in which bans are typically in place.

18056277948_6ece3a402c_oThe MD of Bighorns Road Division has investigated the past 10 year dates when road bans have typically been put in place, and in doing so are comfortable with implementing the dates of March 15 June 15 annually to be the time span one could expect bans to be in effect. Now in saying this, environmental conditions will still be the key factor in deciding just when bans come on and off and could affect shifting these dates 7 to 10 days either way. Therefore it is always suggested for contractors and residents to check our municipal website www.mdbighorn.ca or contact Roadata Services 1 888-830-7623 for the most up to date information regarding road bans.
