As of Friday March 26, 2021 we will be under a Spring Weight Restriction
We have received many complaints about Heavy Trucks travelling faster than 60 km/hr. This is a reminder that the RM of Clayton has a Heavy Truck Speed Limit Bylaw which restricts the speed of vehicles over seven tons to 60 km/hr. The Bylaw is attached for reference.

The Dyck Memorial Road west of Swan Plain will be closed August 6, 2018. The bridge replacement will start, the bridge will be removed completely so please do not cross the barricades. The workers will completely stop working whenever someone other than a crew member comes on site, this will make the job take longer than need be, projections are that the replacement will take 4 – 6 weeks.
The bridge that is west of Swan Plain on the Dyck Memorial Road will be replaced this year. Construction should begin by the end of July and the job will be completed within 8 weeks. During the construction that section of the Dyck Memorial Road shall be closed completely. Please do not cross the barricades, let the crew work as the bridge will be completely removed.
The Railway Crossing 1 mile west of Stenen is being repaired, CN says the road will be closed for 2 to 3 days, while repairs are carried out. There is no way to cross.
The Staff has started to pull shoulders on Highway 8 north of Swan Plain. Please drive with a little extra caution on this section of road. This causes clay to be pulled up and placed on the top of the road surface, if it rains the road will become a bit more slippery. This is annoying but it is critical for the upkeep of the road.
The Plows are out this morning and have been since 4 am. It is very heavy snow and still dangerous so please if you have to take care driving. We will not be clearing any driveways until all roads are done and that will take us about 3 days. Your continued patience is appreciated.
The Swan Plain Bridge on Dyck Memorial Road, West of Swan Plain, has been restricted to 3 tonne. The bridge is unsafe for heavy traffic and it is advised that traffic reduce speed when crossing it, even in a passenger vehicle.
The detour for this bridge is Range Road 2013 to Grid 753. The route is well signed.
Council is looking into options for upgrading or repairing the infrastructure. This will take time and we will keep the public notified of decisions.
