There are several roads throughout the Bruce County Transportation & Environment Services Department's jurisdiction that require weight restrictions/load posting during spring thaw conditions.

Weight restriction timelines and date ranges are dependent upon road conditions and the status of frost presence in the road base.

The Bruce County Transportation and Environmental Services Department endeavors to notify the public with as much notice as possible as to when the restrictions will come into effect and when they will be lifted.

Weight restrictions typically come into effect early March and are lifted in late April.

When weight restrictions are in effect, a vehicles weight may not exceed 5 tonne per axle.
