HRM Implements Spring Weight Restrictions

(Tuesday, March 4/08)-- To minimize potential damage to streets and roads and to be consistent with the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Public Works, HRM is implementing spring weight restrictions on the municipally-owned streets where these restrictions have previously applied.

The restrictions will apply from March 8, 2008 to May 5, 2008. If the weather is such that the roads stabilize earlier in the spring, then the restrictions may be lifted before May 5. The restricted period has normally been put in place between mid-March and early May.

HRM staff has arranged for enforcement of these restrictions to be carried out by Provincial Weight Enforcement personnel. This approach will provide consistent enforcement on restricted roads throughout HRM, whether maintained by HRM or TPW.

Newspaper advertisements listing the restrictions and roads affected will appear in Thursday's edition of The Chronicle-Herald.
