Reduced Load Restrictions

Reduced load restrictions are implemented to enforce maximum loads conveyed by commercial vehicles, mainly trucks, onto Municipal roads during spring thaw, to protect our roads when road damage is most likely to occur. The restriction enforces that the loaded weight of all commercial vehicles shall not be in excess of 5,000 kilograms per axle. The restriction is implemented in March, and in most cases, is lifted at the end of May.

Failure to abide by this load restriction will result in charges being laid under the Ontario Highway Traffic Act.

Some roads, streets and avenues are exempt from this restriction.  To view the list of exempted roads, streets and avenues including maps, please click on the following link Reduced Load Restriction Exemption List
