(Fort McMurray, AB – May 5, 2020) – Load limits on gravel roads will be lowered to 75 per cent of the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) effective immediately, until further notice.

  • West Road, Conklin
  • Stoney Mountain Crossover, Cheecham Hills
  • Draper Road (gravel section only), Fort McMurray
  • Tower Road, Fort McMurray
  • Aostra Road, West of Suncor off Hwy 63
