When to Get a Haul Permit
Permits are required for Overweight/Over-dimensional hauling. To apply for an Overweight/Over-dimensional permit in Camrose County please contact Alberta Infrastructure and Transportation at 1-800-662-7138 or www.travis.gov.ab.ca.
Special Haul Permits or Master Road Use Agreements may also be required for repeated hauling on County roads, including gravel hauling. Please note that a permit is required when hauling more than 8 loads per day on the same route. To initiate the permitting process with Camrose County the applicant must first fill out a Road Use Application Form.
Please note the following:
- When a Hauler acknowledges that eight (8)or more loads with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) in excess of 11,794 kg are to be moving into or out of the same site within a twenty-four (24) hour period, they will be required to apply for a Haul Permit.
- Applications for permits are required from January to December of the given year, however, it will be at the discretion of the Public Works Manager to determine the need for a Haul Permit and whether a "Special Haul Permit" or "Road Use Agreement' is required at the time of submission.
- NOTE THAT NOT ALL APPLICATIONS WILL RESULT IN A PERMIT BEING ISSUED FOR THE HAULING, BUT A RESPONSE WILL BE PROVIDED FROM PUBLIC WORKS FOR ALL APPLICATIONS.
- For example, if a permit is requested for the month of January and the route is frozen track then the Public Works Manager may determine that a permit is not required at this time. If the applicant has requested a time frame encompassing the full year, and the route is currently frozen track, then the applicant will be notified that a permit will not be required at this time (with the time frame for no permit required explicitly noted) but directed that the application must be re-submitted later in the year dependent on current road conditions. This means that should the route still be required in the spring, for example, then the applicant should re-submit an application at that time.
- PLEASE NOTE! Should the Hauler fail to APPLY FOR or execute an applicable Permit and/or fails to meet all the conditions outlined within the Permit, the Road Protection Committee shall be delegated full authority to take all the necessary action to protect the road infrastructure including the issuance of road bans. The Public Works Manager may also at this discretion, refuse to grant the Hauler any or all Permits.
- If a permit is issued, the Public Works Manager shall cause identified roads to be monitored on an ongoing basis and shall notify the Hauler in the event maintenance or road rehabilitation is required pursuant to the Haul Permit.
- If the permit holder does not have the equipment to provide dust control or repairs required on the requested route, then a FEE may be applied by Camrose County to the permit holder, should dust control or repairs be required to the permit route. FEES may also be applied for pre and post inspections of the route at the discretion of the Public Works Manager or his designate.
