INDUSTRY ACTIVITY

The County of Vermilion River has a tremendous amount of heavy oil activity. It has one on the densest amounts of Industry activity in the North-East region of Alberta.  The County has approximately 11,780 wells within its jurisdiction. This activity accounts for much of the traffic on our roads and so the County and Industry partners are continually working together in an effort to maintain safe roads for all to travel on.

Industry helps with maintaining these roads through cost-share agreements for upgrades or construction; provides maintenance on specific roads during the spring road-ban season at no cost to the County; and by adhering to Road Haul Agreements, reduces the traffic to local roads.

Through this working relationship, County and Industry partners hope to provide all users with a safe, efficient and accessible road network. By-Law 14-04 Affects Heavy Traffic on CVR roads.
