Update on Gravel Road Weight Restrictions

Weight restrictions are currently in place on all provincial gravel roads due to mild weather and thawing.

Trucks travelling on gravel roads will be permitted to a maximum of 6,500 kilograms for a single axle, and 12,000 kilograms for a tandem triaxle and 18,000 kilograms on tridem or tridem-equivalent axle.

However, lower than normal temperatures forecast for the next few days have allowed a partial lifting of weight restrictions on gravel roads in all counties.

Starting Sunday, March 5 at 6 a.m. until Monday, March 6 at 12:01 a.m., non-divisible loads up to normal axle loadings will be permitted. An example of a non-divisible load would be a single large piece of equipment as opposed to several smaller pieces of equipment that could be split among several vehicles.
