CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — The P.E.I. Department of Transportation and Public Works is expanding the spring weight restrictions to gravel and clay roads, due in part to severe winter weather.
“In past years, spring weight restrictions have been limited to paved highways,” says Transportation and Public Works Minister Don MacKinnon.
“However, the level of road damage that has occurred this winter has prompted the department to extend the spring weight restrictions to gravel and clay roads to ensure the safety of the travelling public and reduce further damage to our road network.”
The restrictions came into effect at 12:01 a.m. Mar. 15.
