From the Town of Bracebridge:
On an annual basis, the Town of Bracebridge implements a period of reduced loads during the spring thaw on a majority of the Town’s road system. This is done in order to protect the road base from damage caused by wheel loads of heavy vehicles and to increase the life-cycle of municipal roadways.
Pursuant to Section 122(7) of the Highway Traffic Act, R.S.O. 1990, c.H.8 as amended, and in accordance with By-Law 2011-030, reduced loads on municipal roadways within the area municipality of the Town of Bracebridge shall commence at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, March 14, 2022 and remain in effect until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. Reduced loads shall apply to all roads under the jurisdiction of the Town of Bracebridge during such times as official signs are in place.
This process is facilitated through the installation of signage advising reduced load restrictions officially on municipal roadways. These restrictions will remain in effect during the above noted time period until the roadways have been determined to be structurally sound.
The following roads are exempt from the reduced load limit period:
