Reduced Load Restrictions in Effect Monday, March 4 
Reduced load restrictions for commercial motor vehicles and trailers will come into effect on Monday, March 4, 2024 on specific highways and streets within the City of Timmins. By-law 2006-6275 governs load restrictions to protect our roads and highways during the spring thaw, when damage is most likely to happen. By-law 2006-6275 also provides a list of the applicable roads under Schedule A.

The City’s Public Works Dept. is now using the Ministry of Transportation’s Reduced Load Period (RLP) Table to determine the timing of reduced load restrictions. The table uses frost depth, moisture, and daily air temperatures to indicate when reduced load restrictions should be put in place and when they can be lifted. This ensures that the City’s road infrastructure is protected, while supporting the trucking and haulage industry by removed reduced load restrictions when appropriate.

Roads with reduced loads in effect will have signage posted. Learn more about the how the City is working to maintain our roads online at
