Spring road restrictions end early
Spring road restrictions introduced in April to protect Manitoba’s paved road system ended May 24, the province announced last week.
Normally, spring weight restrictions are introduced in mid-March, but this year was one of the latest recorded start dates. Restrictions began April 10 in Zone 1, in the southern part of the province, and April 13 in Zone 2, the northern region. Normally roads are restricted for a 56-day period or about eight weeks. With the removal on May 23, the restriction was about six weeks this year. Zone 1 was restricted a total of 44 days, while Zone 2 was restricted for a total of 41 days.
