Spring Weight Restrictions - Closing Notice

Due to the unusually mild temperatures across the province during
the past week, the Minister of Transportation and Communications
has determined that it is necessary to implement spring weight
restrictions earlier than in previous years. This is necessary in
order to protect public highways from further damage.

Public highways will be subject to spring weight restrictions
effective 12:01 a.m., Feb. 26. Weight restrictions already apply
to gravel roads in most counties across the province.

For a list of exempt roads, see The Chronicle-Herald newspaper on
Tuesday, Feb. 27, or contact your local Department of
Transportation and Communications office or any provincial scale
