Volker Stevin maintains the highways and traffic lights within the Town for Alberta Transportation. Please call 888-877-6237 or visit their website.
If water has accumulated on the road near your house, on your driveway or front lawn, you may be located near a trap low. A trap low is a device that slows the flow of water into stormwater ponds; it is designed to hold the water on the street (properties on streets with trap lows are graded to keep the water away from foundations). If rainwater accumulation has not drained 24 hours after the rain stops, please contact Town of Cochrane Operations at 403-851-2590. More info on trap lows.
The Town occasionally installs "Disabled Parking Only" signs on a public street if warranted. To be considered, you must be able to prove that you have a permanent disabled parking placard for your vehicle AND you must not have access to to other off-street parking (garage, driveway, carport, etc). If this is the case, please contact us to initiate a discussion (please include your address): email@example.com.
