2019 Load Restriction schedules have been released with some unfortunate news to the construction and transportation industry in general. Until June 30th, load restrictions are in place on roads in order for the thawing soil not to damage the pavement any further than normal wear and tear would. Pursuant to The Highway Traffic Act, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation is imposing reduced load limits for designated parts of the provincial highways between March 1 and April 30, for Schedule 1 and Schedule 2 roadways, and from March 1 to June 30 for Schedule 3 roadways. These are subject to change however given the late stretch; it’s fair to predict that larger projects will be affected by the underload restrictions further into the season than usual. For more information please visit the 511 Ontario website.
