Each winter, the MD’s Transportation department provides residents an opt-in snowplow flag service that allows their driveways to be cleared following a snowfall. Flags can be purchased at both the Main Administration Office in Slave Lake and the Sub-office in Flatbush, during regular business hours.
ROAD BAN IN EFFECT
Road Ban Order 2022-105 was enacted November 30, 2022 at 8:00 am. This order rescinds all prior road bans.
In accordance with the Traffic Safety Act, permits are required for all overweight and over-dimensional loads. Contact the Transportation department for more information or to obtain a permit.
How the Snowplow Flag Program Works
Opt in to the snowplow flag program and MD crews will clear your property's driveway following a snowfall. Before you apply, take a moment to review these simple ground rules.
Purchase Your Snowplow Flags
Each snowplow flag costs $42.50 plus GST each (or half price for seniors), and is good for one instance of snow clearance. Payment can be made by cheque, Interac or cash. Remember that you also need to submit a snowplowing agreement at the time of purchase.
Submit Your Agreement
To purchase snowplow flags and participate in the program, you need to complete a Private Driveway Snowplowing Agreement. This document certifies that you understand and agree with the program parameters.
