Spring Road Restriction Info
Starting March 22 through June 10 at the latest, Manitoba Spring Road restrictions will be in effect.
What Drivers Need to know about Spring Road Restrictions
- Drivers should be prepared for detours, especially in rural communities.
- Different jurisdictions and roads have different regulations, before you head out, plan your route and become familiar with the weight restrictions for the roads you may be taking.
- Even when empty, tractor-trailers will be overweight if the road is restricted to 90%. Your steering axle will put you overweight. We really need to stay completely off any restricted road.
- Phone your shipper/receiver and specifically ask if they are aware of a route to them that doesn’t put you on a restricted road. Busy shippers/receivers usually are aware of the restrictions and can help you get in.
- Account for extra time. Sometimes we are detoured well out of the way in order to take a safe route.
- If you are a part of the Len Dubois fleet, you should call John if you have any questions about the restrictions. We expect our drivers to remain in compliance at all times.
- For more information about the 20223 Manitoba Road Restrictions, visit the Manitoba Provincial website.
As a truck driver, it is your responsibility to be aware of the Spring Road Restrictions for the different states and provinces you will be travelling in. You are expected to abide by these restrictions and stay off roads which you are too heavy for. If you are caught travelling on roads that you shouldn’t be on you will be fined. Fines can range from a couple of hundred dollars up to a thousand dollars.
