Municipality Implements Annual Spring Weight Restrictions

Friday, March 3, 2017 (Halifax, NS) – 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 http://novascotia.ca/tran/trucking/springweight.asp.
