The purpose of Spring Road Restrictions is to protect Manitoba's surfaced highways from damage during spring thaw conditions by reducing allowable weights. In consultation with those affected by these weight reductions, Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation has revised its policies and procedures to reflect current transportation trends and to help improve trip planning.
General guidelines to Spring Road Restrictions are provided here. Please refer to The Highway Traffic Act and Spring Road Restriction Bulletins for specific details.
Please check regularly for changes throughout the restriction period. Delays to the start date will be communicated via this web site and Road Information (511).
Advertisements announcing that the Spring Road Restrictions Order are available, and information on how to obtain it will be published in the fall and in February prior to the restrictions start date in the following publications:
