Spring weight restrictions come into effect on Monday

Spring weight restrictions on provincial roads in eleven counties and the Halifax Regional Municipality will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Monday.

That includes Colchester, Cumberland, Hants, and Pictou counties.

The restrictions, put in place to protect roads during the spring thaw, are expected to last for about two months.

Some roads, including 100-series highways, are exempt from the restrictions and a full list is available on the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal website.

Restrictions in the remaining five counties and the Cape Breton Regional Municipality begin on March 18th.
