Weight restrictions will be lifted, heavy haulers can go back to hauling their normal loads.

 

We are asking that oilfield traffic continue to follow their per-approved routes to enable adequate levels of maintenance on our municipal roads.

 

Permits are no longer required for rig moves, however, given the recent heavy rains and the effects on our roads, we do ask that companies continue to call or email their routes to our offices to ensure that the roads can not only handle the moves, but also that there are no roads along the routes closed due to construction or impassible conditions.  This applies to both service and drilling rigs.

 

A further reminder, DO NOT, under any circumstances, cross or move the barricades of roads that are closed.  

 

Thank you for your cooperation!
