During snowy weather residents may experience occasional delays in local plowing - Lacombe County service levels depend on the duration and severity of the storm - but we try to have all 2,000 km ploughed in 3.5 to 4 days. The paved roads are higher priority and we usually have them ploughed and sanded within 12 hours.
This is a difficult task but we are fortunate to have a very experienced and hard working staff. We use 10 graders, 6 trucks/sanders, 3 tractors, and 2 bobcats.
Please drive carefully and thank you for your patience while we are making the roads safe for you.
