FREDERICTON (GNB) – Spring weight restrictions for truck traffic will be lifted on Sunday, May 2, in southern New Brunswick, and on Sunday, May 9, in northern New Brunswick.

“We appreciate the patience and co-operation of our industry partners in reducing loads and planning alternate routes during this period,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Jill Green. “It is important to note that some of our secondary routes will remain restricted or closed to trucks until the road conditions improve.”

Seasonal weight limits are imposed to protect the province’s roads during freeze-thaw cycles.

Should weather conditions warrant, district engineers are authorized to close roads to trucks or impose weight restrictions on highways or portions of highways at any time.
