DUE TO THE EXTENDED WINTER WEATHER, SPRING WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED UNTIL MONDAY, MARCH 23rd AT 12:01 A.M.
Friday, March 13, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – To minimize potential damage to streets and roads, the Halifax Regional Municipality will introduce its annual spring weight restrictions for heavy vehicles travelling on municipally maintained roads in the former County of Halifax areas, starting at 12:01 a.m. Monday, March 23.
Those restrictions are expected to remain in place through to May 18, 2015; however, if the roads are stabilized prior to that date, the restrictions may be lifted earlier and the municipality will issue a Public Service Announcement.
The municipality’s spring weight restrictions are consistent with those of the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (TIR). Details of vehicle restrictions can be found online at http://novascotia.ca/tran/trucking/springweight.asp.
