but will select from the available equipment list the equipment that is best suited for the work to be done;
and that provides the most cost effective level of service for the job.

All equipment for the County must sign and follow the Contractor's Safety Agreement.

Transportation Review


An independent study completed this past year took a critical look at policies, practices, and planning for the county’s department that manages its 2,300 kms. of paved and gravel roads.
The report looked at current practices, interviewed staff and council, and looked at municipalities of similar sizes for comparison.
The report concluded that “there are a number of issues that exist with the structure and processes of the Transportation Function.”
Yellowhead County will be acting on the recommendations made in the report to deal with communications issues, inspection schedules, organizational and staffing issues, and other concerns..



Strategic Value Services was hired to complete a Transportation Organizational Review and Operations Audit for Yellowhead County. SVS’s report included an assessment of the current organizational structure, proposed changes to maintenance standards where necessary, and looked to see if current staffing levels were appropriate. SVS also provided recommendations on internal communications and reporting; as well as how residential input and feedback is addressed. Most of the recommendations made by SVS will begin in 2013 as they will have to included in next year’s budget, but planning on some of the recommendations can begin immediately.

Road Priorities

Connected Road Network

Council adopted the County’s Collector Road Network Program based on road priorities for the County. The goals of these paving priorities were to eliminate road bans, tie pavement to pavement, reduce conflict between industrial users and adjacent residents, and enhance future economic growth, and create cost-share partnerships with other users. These included grading, base and paving.

These priority projects reflect anticipated growth in the Edson-West and Branch Corner areas, as well as paved connectivity to other subdivisions, local roads, industry, and highways.

Road Planning Considerations

The Collector Road Network Program considered road planning for residential and industrial traffic, future industrial developments, and the impact of proposed highway plans.

This policy is a criteria system that sets paving priorities based on traffic volume, traffic composition, roadway function, residential densities, adjacent features, growth potential, cost sharing, and political consideration. It’s purpose was to ensure that all Road Paving requests were reviewed and evaluated fairly and consistently against an established priority criteria. All road planning by the County ties into the proposed Hwy 16 interchanges.
