Road Bans and Permits

Please be advised that Wheatland County will be implementing spring road bans commencing on March 18, 2019.

Please note that any drastic variations to the current weather forecast may reduce or extend the date the ban is initiated.

Road bans typically start in March and can go through to end of November, and are put in place to help protect County roads from damage. Road bans will change depending on weather, road construction, change of road surface and truck haul routes. As changes are made, this page will be updated so...before you head out, check back here for a list of all bans and a map to go with it! If you have any questions about restrictions on Wheatland County roads, please email us!

If you are requiring information on highway restrictions, weight charts, permits and much more please visit RoaData.
