Road Use Agreements
The purpose of a Road Use Agreement (RUA) is to provide guidelines and procedures for road use by individuals or companies with extensive or continuous haul projects. They are designed to allow individuals or companies to utilize Thorhild County roadways for the purpose of hauling equipment, materials, or loads, and allow the municipality to impose specific conditions for the roadways based on the Road Protection & Traffic Control Bylaw. With more than 1,250 km of roads within Thorhild County there is significant investment in road infrastructure that must be protected.
Thorhild County will monitor these haul route(s) and will ensure that Road Use Agreements are enforced to prevent problems that arise from road damage. When roadways are susceptible to damage, road bans and/or even road closures may be issued to prevent further damage and to correct unsafe conditions.
