Effective immediately, spring weight restrictions are lifted on all Island roadways.
In an effort to reduce damage to the province’s roads, the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal implemented spring weight restrictions on March 5.
The restrictions reduce the maximum load allowed per axle for larger trucks, which "helps preserve the provincial investment in the Island’s highways during a vulnerable period," said the department.
Overweight permits were not issued by the department during spring weight restrictions and tolerances were not valid on all-weather highways.
All those restrictions have now been lifted.
Last year the restrictions were in place until April 8.
