Truck Half-Load Restrictions Begin March 1

print-logo February 12, 2020

During the spring thaw, most Rural roads become too soft to withstand the weight of a fully loaded truck, no matter how many axles.
In an effort to reduce damage to our roads during this time of year, weight restrictions of five tonnes per axle (half-loads) on all rural roads within the Municipality of Port Hope have been implemented, from March 1 to April 30, 2020.

**Note that the restriction timeline may be altered as conditions are monitored.

Please check with Northumberland County for any weight restrictions that may apply to the County roads that pass through our Municipality.

Please direct questions about Municipal roads to the Works and Engineering Department at 905-885-2431.
