To prevent damaging important roads this spring, truckers are advised to closely monitor their loads when using secondary highways across Saskatchewan.  

"It's imperative we protect our road network at this time of year by reducing the weights trucks are allowed to carry," Highways Minister Jeremy Cockrill said. "On different occasions throughout the year, we adjust allowable weights to ensure the efficient movement of goods while protecting our highway infrastructure." 

Any existing winter weights need to be removed and reverted to regulation weight by Wednesday, March 15, at midnight. Truckers must reduce the weight of their loads since all secondary highways revert to regulation weights. 

Spring road restrictions will also begin soon. These road bans reduce the allowable weight on rural municipality roads and secondary weight on provincial highways by 10 to 15 per cent. 

Road bans typically begin in March and run for six weeks, ending in late April to early May. The bans only impact secondary weight highways and not primary highways, such as 1, 11, or 16.  

Truckers are strongly advised to monitor their loads and watch for restrictions during this period.
