All drivers are responsible for knowing their vehicle weight classifications and adhering to all highways and gravel road weight restrictions, and R.M. or provincial road bans.
The R.M. of Marriott may issue an order to restrict the use of gravel roads during inclement weather or unfavourable road conditions. These bans are most often issued in the spring and fall when wet conditions soften our road surfaces.
The RM’s policy on Road Restriction is as follows:
Provincial Road Restrictions – Depending on local weather and road conditions, the R.M. of Marriott may opt in or out of Provincial Spring Road Restrictions. Please refer to the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure website for maps and more information.
Permits – Primary weight permits are not required in the R.M. of Marriott, as all Municipal Roads are Primary with the Exception of the Marriott Grid
Persons or businesses responsible for frequent or intensive hauling on any of our gravel roads must enter into an annual “Road Maintenance Agreement” with the R.M. Please contact the office for more information.
The R.M. of Marriott does not sell gravel, as the majority of municipally used gravel is outsourced and purchased from a private pit. There are several private gravel pit owners in the area that are willing to sell gravel to individuals. Feel free to contact the municipal office for a list of known gravel pit owners.
Before gravel is extracted from the R.M. of Marriott an application to remove gravel must be completed. Find the form here. Please submit Schedule A Gravel Extraction Bylaw -Declaration of gravel excavated before November 30 of each year.
The R.M. of Marriott currently does not administer a Dust Control Program. However, if enough ratepayers show interest, the RM will organize dust control at requested yard sites for the season at the land owners expense. If you are interesting in purchasing your own dust control please call the office by May 1st of each year.
