TRAVIS permits are required by the Province of Alberta to move an over-weight and over-sized load in Alberta on all provincial highways and municipal roadways. Since 2018, the County has contracted ROADATA Services to handle all TRAVIS permit requests. ROADATA has full access to the County's database of industry operators permitted roads (you must have a County permit in order to get approved for a TRAVIS permit to travel municipal roads within the County) in order to approve or reject TRAVIS permits. Please visit this website to find out more information on the TRAVIS system or to apply for a permit.
