Reduced Load Restrictions in Effect on Certain Grey County Roads

Reduced load restrictions of 5 tonnes per axle will take effect for many Grey County-owned roads on February 15. Restrictions are being activated about two weeks earlier than usual this year in alignment with local municipalities due to the seasonal conditions.   

Roads are at their most vulnerable in the spring as frost leaves the ground. Load restrictions help extend the lifespan of the road surface by minimizing damage from heavy vehicles. Depending on weather conditions, restrictions are typically lifted around May 1. If restrictions are to be extended or lifted early, Grey County will provide notification through its website,  

For more information, contact the Transportation Services Department at roads [at] (roads[at]grey[dot]ca) or call 1-800-567-4739.
