SEASONAL LOAD RESTRICTIONS

To protect the roadway, the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has in place a Seasonal Strength Loss Program for heavy vehicles and commercial transport trucks on B.C. Highways. This program identifies and imposes load restrictions on roads, or portions of roads that have been weakened by excess water in the road base.  Once the road has been determined to be structurally sound, load restrictions can be rescinded.

All load restriction notices are pursuant to Section 66 of the Transportation Act.


All overload permits on restricted routes are invalid for the duration of these restrictions.
