Please Note: Spring 2020 weight restriction

Spring road restrictions

 When transporting goods and/or services in Saskatchewan, the maximum gross vehicle weight is dependent on highway classification. 


Spring road restrictions are dependent on weather. Typically, these road restrictions start in the first week of March in the southwest of the province, and the remainder over a two -three week period. 


Weight limits on municipal highways are the same as those for secondary highways, including the winter season; except eight-axle B-trains and unless otherwise allowed by the regulations. 


The RM of Nipawin follows the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure spring road bans.

 

Spring Road Bans


When restrictions are implemented, they may be in place for up to six weeks. Restrictions may change with 48-hours-notice. If a prolonged weather cold period occurs, the weight restriction may be removed until weather conditions warrant it.

winter weight allowances

The winter weight period that allows additional weight typically runs from November 16 through March 14. 

However, if weather remains mild the program may be postponed because without sufficient freezing, extra weight can damage pavement and the road beneath.
