Thunder Bay’s heavy load restrictions are ending for the season on Monday at 7:00 a.m.

The restriction goes into place to protect roads as snow melts.

Melting snow ends up under the pavement as water and when it re-freezes and expands it increases the odds of potholes forming when heavy loads drive on it.

Roadway weight restrictions came into effect on March 11 in conjunction with the Ministry of Transportation’s Provincial Reduced Load Regulations.
