Government of New Brunswick

Spring weight restrictions for truck traffic will come into effect at midnight on Sunday, February 27th in southern New Brunswick and at midnight on Sunday, March 6th in northern New Brunswick.

Spring weight restrictions will be lifted from highways in Southern New Brunswick at midnight on Sunday, May 8, 2022 and at midnight May 15 in northern New Brunswick. These dates are dependent upon weather conditions and are subject to change.

The Department reminds heavy vehicle operators and freight forwarders that the authorized axle load limits are reduced during the spring thaw period on all public roads. This is done every year to account for the road network’s lower bearing capacity during the spring thaw period.
