2016 Manitoba Spring Road Restrictions (SRR) Program

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.

Notification of Affected Highways

The Spring Road Restriction Order, identifying affected roadways, is made available in the fall and again in February prior to the restrictions implementation date.

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).

  1. Web site: Refer to this web site often for bulletins and updates, tire calculation charts, the SRR Map and more.
  2. Road Information Line: Information will be available through a verbal description of road restrictions at 511, or 1-877-627-6237 outside Manitoba.
