The road load restrictions are effective as of 12:00am Wednesday February 7, 2024. Road conditions will be continually monitored by staff, and the restrictions will remain in place until conditions are suitable to remove them without damage to municipal roads. 

For updates to load restrictions, please refer to the “Seasonal load restrictions and closures” tab on the City’s webpage provided below:
