What are Spring Road Restrictions

This coming March Winter weights will come off and then a short while after Spring road restrictions will come on.

Spring Road Restrictions.

The reason for these restrictions being applied is to save the roads from having to carry more weight while the frost is coming out of the ground. This is done by limiting the amount of weight that trucks can carry per axle group.

The earliest start dates of Spring Road Restrictions are March 1. This is for the southern region of Manitoba as you get further north the weight restrictions take longer to be applied as the frost stays in the ground longer the further north you get.

As a trucking company we understand the challenges this makes for those trying to get projects started in the spring. To overcome this challenge stockpiling materials before the restrictions get applied is a way around this problem.

Here we are stockpiling rip rap material for a breakwater wall.
