City of Kawartha Lakes to remove half-load restrictions for all roads effective May 8

Filed under: ,
May 2, 2017 - The City of Kawartha Lakes Roads Operations division announced today that it will lift all load restrictions effective Monday May 8, 2017.

Restrictions are typically put into place during the spring thaw, when road damage is most likely to occur due to heavy loading. This program identifies and imposes load restrictions on roads, or portions of roads that are weakened by excess water in the road base. Once the road has been determined to be structurally sound, load restrictions may be rescinded.

Due to changing weather patterns, the roads affected and the duration of the restricted period may change. See the City's web site at any time for a current listing of load restrictions at this link: http://www.city.kawarthalakes.on.ca/residents/public-works/general-operations/seasonal-load-restrictions-and-road-closures
