Kneehill County has canceled the Overland Flood Alert as runoff has slowed and water levels in the Three Hills and Kneehills Creek are subsiding.
Road Closures remain in effect, please visit our Road Closure page for more information. Fixing the roads is of high priority. If you see areas and washouts not already flagged, please contact our office, 403-443-5541. If issues are flagged, they are already on the to-do list.
Many roads in the County are down to one lane, please slow down and use caution when traveling in these areas. Obey the Road Closed signs and do not go around barriers. Thank you for your patience.
