REDUCED LOAD RESTRICTIONS
Reduced load restrictions (5 tonnes per axle) occur seasonally based on weather and road conditions, at the discretion of the County Engineer. The season typically runs from March 1 to May 15. Click here to view a map showing the roads that reduced load periods usually apply to.
For more information, refer to the Consolidated Traffic By-law 2005-32
ROAD NETWORK RATIONALIZATION PLAN
Dufferin County performs a review of their transportation network at an interval of approximately every 15 years to learn whether the network is current with respect to usage, growth, etc. The overall objective of a rationalization study is to ensure that the County road network (roads and bridges/culverts) is functioning properly as an arterial system and that infrastructure is being maintained to the required standards.
