Heavy Load Restrictions

Heavy Load Restriction Signage

The Ministry of Transportation’s Provincial Reduced Load Regulations are put in place each spring. The start date of the restrictions varies, and depends on weather conditions. The City of Thunder Bay places Heavy Load Restrictions (Reduced Load Restrictions) on all streets within the City limits with the exception of those streets listed in the document below. Announcement of the commencement of the restrictions is provided through the media.

The restrictions are put into place to prevent unnecessary damage to city streets. Your cooperation is appreciated. 

Heavy Load Restrictions within the city limits of the City of Thunder Bay are currently not in effect.
