Municipality of Whitestone load restrictions effective March 15, 2019
Vehicle Load weights will be restricted to 5 tonnes per axel on all roads throughout the Municipality, effective March 15, 2019. (By-Law 24-2000)
Road conditions will be continually monitored and the restrictions will be lifted when road conditions merit.
Restrictions are typically put into place during late winter and/or early spring when road damage is most likely to occur due to heavy loading and when weather patterns are likely to significantly fluctuate. This program protects roads that are weakened by excess water and frost in the road base. Once the road has been determined to be structurally sound, load restrictions will be rescinded.
Exceptions will be considered under special circumstances. Please contact the Road Superintendent at 705-389-2466
