Dangerous Goods and Trucking Routes

The City of Lloydminster has initiated a study to update and develop the Dangerous Good Routes (DGR) and Truck Routes within the municipal boundaries. The purpose of this study is to provide safe and efficient options for the travel and transportation within the area.

What is a dangerous good?

Dangerous goods are products which host a specific risk or safety concern within their nature. Dangerous goods may be gases, liquids or solids which could be explosive, flammable, combustible, oxidizing, poisonous, nuclear or corrosive.

When transporting, these materials must be properly identified with a placard on this shipping container and/or mode of transportation.

Current Routes

Currently the transportation of dangerous good are permitted on Highway 16 ( Ray Nelson Drive/ 44 Street) and Highway 17 (50 Avenue).

In 2015, the Transportation Master Plan identified a need to update the Dangerous Good Routes and Truck Routes to ensure safety for all roadway users.

This project will help identify the roadway uses of current commercial stakeholders and residents alike to ensure restricted items are handled with caution.


Public Engagement

Throughout this project both stakeholder meeting and public opportunities will be held. Within the first phase of engagement, commercial stakeholders are invited to attend one thirty-minute stakeholder meeting on October 17, 2019 from:

  • 10:30 am to 11:00 am,
  • 11:30 am to 12:00 pm,
  • 1:30 pm to 2:00 pm or
  • 2:30 pm to 3:00 pm

  • Is the Trans Canada highway 16 bypass to the south of the city going to get built for sure within the next 5-10yr timeframe? This information would be of great value to decide where and how the routes go in our city, otherwise its a waste of money and time correct? Thanks...

    Hello,

    Thank you for your question.

    Currently the City of Lloydminster has no timeline available for the construction of the Highway 16 bypass. However, the Dangerous Goods Route (DGR) and Truck Route Establishment Project will form a framework for route evaluation going forward. This will allow the City of regularly re-evaluate the traffic systems for potential additions to the DGR and Truck Routes as new infrastructure is constructed within the municipal limits.

    Right now, City and contracted organization are seeking your feedback through the online survey and the Open House on October 17 to evaluate the existing network with consideration to safety, connectivity, community impact and much more.
