2019 Manitoba Spring Road Restrictions
- by Don Stewart
The Provinces Spring Road Restrictions Program (SRR) is upon us, with the start date scheduled for March 15, 2019.
The purpose of Spring Road Restrictions is to protect Manitoba's surfaced pavements from undue damage by reducing allowable axle weights during the spring thawing season. In consultation with those affected by these weight reductions, Manitoba Infrastructure periodically revises its policies and procedures to reflect the current transportation trends, industry needs and weather patterns. Up to date policies and procedures help industry improve trip planning while minimizing the impact of loads to the weak pavement structures when they are at their most vulnerable conditions.
The SRR official start and end dates have been published and available below:
The Province Issues Notification Of Affected Highways
Spring road restrictions are determined through collection and analysis of data from the previous year, resulting in the evaluation and determination of which roads will be subject to restriction in the upcoming spring season. To assist motor carriers, farmers, businesses and other interested parties in preparation, the SRR order is what identifies the affected roadways, This order is made available on the MI website in the fall with subsequent update(s) as required. Advertisements announcing that the upcoming spring road restrictions order is available throughout the year, and information on how to obtain the Order, are published in the fall and in February in various publications.
