Winter weights are out, and spring road weight restrictions are back for secondary highways as of today.

These commercial truck weight restrictions protect the surface and ground beneath the roads during spring thaw, when they are softer and unable to handle more weight until conditions are dryer. 

Typically, these road restrictions start in the first week of March in the west-central of the province.

The 2024 restrictions began this morning for the region and will remain in place for up to six weeks.
