Heavy ve­hi­cle re­stric­tions be­gin

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

Driv­ers of heavy ve­hi­cles should take note that the pe­riod of weight re­stric­tions be­gan yes­ter­day in zone 1, the south­ern area of Que­bec which in­cludes the East­ern Town­ships, and will con­tinue un­til May 30th. The re­stric­tions will come into place in zones 2 and 3 on April 7th and will con­tinue un­til June 6th. As in past years, the dates of the be­gin­ning and end of this pe­riod are de­cided ac­cord­ing to the cli­mate in each zone. The dates cover not only the thaw pe­riod but also the pe­riod when the roads re­gain their sup­port­ive strength. The dates may change, depend­ing on the weather con­di­tions.

Dur­ing this pe­riod, Con­t­role routier Que­bec in­ten­si­fies its ac­tiv­i­ties of weigh­ing heavy trucks, as much at weigh sta­tions as on the roads net­work.

The “Degel” signs in­stalled on pub­lic roads all around Que­bec dur­ing the spring thaw in­di­cate that the weight re­stric­tions are in force.
