KAWARTHA: Load weight will be restricted on most secondary roads throughout the City effective immediately. Road conditions will be continually monitored and the restriction will be lifted when road conditions merit.
Restrictions are typically put into place during the spring thaw, when road damage is most likely to occur due to heavy loading. This program identifies and imposes load restrictions on roads, or portions of roads that are weakened by excess water in the road base. Once the road has been determined to be structurally sound, load restrictions may be rescinded.
Due to the fluctuating weather patterns and limited frost levels in the ground, the roads affected and the duration of the restricted period will be continually reviewed. Operations will monitor conditions and amend the notice as appropriate.
