Rural Roadside Vegetation Control Program

Strathcona County's Rural Roadside Vegetation Control Program is carried out annually to control weeds on County property and protect adjacent property from encroaching weeds and other problem species.

All County maintained right-of-ways will be treated where required each year. Keeping rural roadsides free of noxious weeds and brush improves:

  • visibility at intersection and along the roadside 
  • efficiency of snow clearing 
  • drainage

A variety of mechanical techniques and risk-reduced herbicides are used to ensure a healthy and competitive grass stand, while minimizing weeds and other problem vegetation.  We adhere to industry standards provided by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development. 

Please note that vegetation control on primary and secondary highways is the responsibility of Alberta Transportation. View a complete listing of primary and secondary highways in Strathcona County.

Landowner Option Program 

This program provides the landowner the option to control vegetation in the ditch adjacent to their property.  To take part in the program, please contact Transportation and Agriculture Services at 780-417-7100.
