Winter Weight season postponed
Each year, the amount of weight that trucks can haul increases during the winter months. The winter weight period typically begins November 16 however, the 2018 start date is being delayed due to weather and road structure conditions.
Saskatchewan’s winters help to freeze and strengthen roads. As a result, more weight can be transported on provincial highways creating improved efficiency for trucking goods and exporting Saskatchewan products. Currently, roads are not fully frozen and additional weights could damage pavement and the road structures beneath. Road structures will continue to be monitored throughout the province and winter weights will be implemented as soon as sufficient freezing exists.
