Spring Road Bans Now in Effect
Spring road bans are now in effect across southern Saskatchewan and the Kindersley, North Battleford and Saskatoon areas. Road bans are also in effect in many Rural Municipalities in these areas. Meanwhile, road bans are expected to be implemented across the remainder of the province on April 16. Spring road bans restrict the amount of weight trucks can haul on many secondary weight highways across the province. The difference between spring weights and normal secondary weights is about 10 to 15 per cent, depending on truck configuration. The weight restrictions are implemented each spring to protect roads from truck damage.
