Spring road weight restrictions are now in effect. Heavy commercial vehicles are not permitted to travel on specified roads throughout the province. The weight restrictions are necessary during the spring thaw to help protect roads that are weakened by mild and wet weather.
The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal monitors conditions throughout spring so roads can be opened or closed as needed. For a complete list of restricted and exempt roads visit http://www.novascotia.ca/tran/trucking/springweight.asp or contact TIR’s Hebbville Office at (902) 543-4121. If you have concerns about the closures and your waste removal, please call the waste hotline at 1-855-530-3324.
