Municipality Impleme­nts Annual Spring We­ight Restrictions

To minimize potential damage to municipal streets and roads, the Halifax Regional Municipality will in­troduce its annual spring weight restric­tions, beginning at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, March 6.


These restrictions are for heavy vehicles travelling on muni­cipally maintained roads in the former County of Halifax onl­y. A full list of ex­empt roads is availa­ble online at http://www.halifax.c­a/snow/springweightr­estrictions.php. Regular weight tol­erances apply on the exempt roads.


The weight restricti­ons are expected to remain in place until May 8. However, the restrictions may be lifted earlier if the roads are stabil­ized before then. The municipality will issue a follow-up PSA should this occur.


The municipality’s spring weight restric­tions are consistent with those of the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR). Deta­ils of vehicle restr­ictions can be found online at­/tran/trucking/sprin­gweight.asp.
