Spring Load Restrictions

You are here

During each spring, from March 1 to May 15, half-load restrictions (5 tonnes per axle) are in effect, per by By-law 2000-08 (PWO-2), pursuant to Section 122 of the Highway Traffic Act, to protect the condition of the roads. With the warmer weather and the frost coming out of the ground, the roads become soft and any large vehicles have the potential to cause serious damage to the roads. Contact the Operations and Infrastructure Department for further information at 905-476-4301.
