Spring melt is continuing to cause trouble on local roadways.
As of Monday (Apr. 25), Range Road 171 between Highway 29 and Township Road 552, east of Lamont, and Range Road 163 between Township Road 580 and 574, east of Mundare, are closed due to water on the roads.
As the majority of Lamont County roads are gravelled, it can cause significant damage to the road structure. Soft spots can cause issues to the integrity of the road.
While these roads will be closed temporarily, several roadways have reopened, including:
- Range Road 162 between Highway 29 and Township Road 552
- Range Road 162 between Highway 29 and Township Road 560
- Range Road 190 between Highway 29 and Township Road 560
- Range Road 162 between Township Road 552 and 550
Updates on local road closures will be posted to the Lamont County Facebook page and Twitter. Information can also be found on their website here.
