Road Construction

The County of Stettler undergoes various road construction projects each year which are approved by Council. The needs of all areas are given equal consideration when projects are established. These projects are established by priorities based on;

  • Necessity
  • Benefit achieved from the construction
  • Possible Alternatives
  • Current condition compared with type and amount of traffic

Gravel Program

Regular gravelling requires approximately 300 cubic yards of gravel per mile which does vary from road to road. Re-gravelling is undertaken in each year on the basis of priorities with consideration to the road classification and the existing gravel condition of the road relative to the amount and type of traffic.

Gravel Exploration

The County of Stettler No. 6 is always looking for sources of gravel. Should you know of any sources, please contact the County of Stettler.

Road Improvement Plan

The County works continually through a number of avenues to ensure that the roads are being maintained and improved upon year after year. Although road improvement is achieved through a number of steps, the end result is better roads for all. The various activities undertaken by the Infrastructure and Operations department are mapped out every year on a Road Improvement Plan. This plan is in map form and it shows all of the roads that are being graveled, constructed, improved upon, paved and graded. This is a very detailed map and contains all of the information about the road network in the County.

Road Requests

For residential or commercial access/approach requests, please contact the County.

Lane Grading and Snowplowing

The County of Stettler currently has 602 residences that have signed up for laneway snowplow removal.

The County of Stettler No. 6, when requested and subject to availability, may provide grading or snowplowing for residential lanes or driveways.

 

Prior to commencement of work, the following must be completed:

  1. A “Hold Harmless” Agreement must be signed by the Land Owner.
  2. A “Flag” wil be issued to the resident when the completed form is returned and the flag must be displayed where visible to the Grader Operator.

Snow removal from laneways is currently free of charge.

Grading of laneways will be charged at a rate of $50 per ¼ mile, per laneway, per occurrence.

The County of Stettler No. 6 will provide snowplowing of laneways on private property that provide access to a permanent residence, only if the laneway is suitable for plowing.

Grading or snowplowing to bins, haystacks, or corrals is not allowed. Any Patrol Operator found guilty of providing this service will be subject to suspension or termination.

The County of Stettler No. 6 will not provide grading services or snowplowing services of driveways on private property situated in Hamlets or for multi-lot subdivisions.

Overweight Permits

The preservation of the County of Stettler's road network is accomplished by the strict enforcement of road bans, issuing overweight routing and permits and encouraging compliance by the road users. The objective of these initiatives is to ensure our roadway infrastructure is maintained to the highest possible level in the most effective and efficient manner. This will allow for the safe and comfortable transportation of people and goods.

Note: For all overweight permits and inquiries, contact RoaData Services at (888) 830-7623 or http://www.roadata.com/
