Early Thaw Prompts Weight Restrictions

Weight restrictions will be in place on all provincial gravel roads starting at noon Friday, Feb. 24.

Gravel roads will be posted to a maximum of 15,000 kilograms until further notice.

Unseasonably warm weather is softening gravel roads to the point where weight restrictions are necessary to avoid unsafe road conditions and expensive repairs.

The department will continue to monitor road and weather conditions to determine when it is safe to remove the restrictions.
