This weekend's thaw means spring weight restrictions will be put in place on Prince Edward Island's roads.

It must be spring: Spring weight restrictions are in place on Prince Edward Island roads as of midnight Saturday.

Weight restrictions limit the maximum load allowed for large transport trucks to help preserve the province’s roadways as highway beds become softer and more vulnerable to damage from heavy vehicles at warmer temperatures.

No overweight permits are issued during the restriction period and tolerances are not valid.

For other road users, milder weather can present new driving challenges and drivers are asked to drive safely and watch out for frost heaves and potholes. To report a road problem, visit www.gov.pe.ca/reportproblems or contact your nearest dispatch office www.gov.pe.ca/dispatchoffices.
