Spring road bans: effective Mar. 18
75 per cent axle load limit on Town streets
In an effort to reduce damage to Town streets over the coming weeks, the Town of Stony Plain has implemented spring weight restrictions/road bans on all Town streets (with some exceptions), beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, March 18.
During spring thaw, most Town roads become too soft to withstand the weight of a fully loaded truck, no matter how many axles it has.
Restrictions are 75 per cent of normal axle loadings and will remain in place until 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 31 inclusive. Dates are dependent on weather conditions and are subject to change.
"Weight limits are put in place to ensure that our road infrastructure does not suffer damage during the annual frost-and-thaw cycle," says William Choy, mayor of Stony Plain. "We provide this notice so companies can properly plan their loads and routes during the spring break-up period. We thank local businesses and the transportation industry for their understanding and co-operation during these annual restrictions, which help to keep our road system in the best possible shape.”
Please assist the Town in reducing repairs to our streets by not having heavy deliveries to your property during this vulnerable time of the year.
