Please be aware that crews will be out continuously during the road construction season making repairs to several roads. Crews will do their best to accomodate traffic, but in some cases traffic may need to be detoured. Be aware of posted road construction signs and detour signs and reduce speed when necessary. Public Works continues to monitor our road system to identify where minor damage has occurred around culverts that may potentially present problems.  We ask drivers to remain aware while travelling on our roads. We strongly urge drivers to use extreme caution when approaching areas where water is flowing across the road surface and avoid them whenever possible. We greatly appreciate the public’s cooperation while roads are assessed, closed and repaired.

Please report road condition issues by telephone to our office at 780.846.3309 or 780.853.5492 or via the Report A Concern page.  
If it is an after hours emergency, please call 780.846.2929.
