Notice of seasonal road restrictions

Effective March 1, 2023 seasonal load restrictions will be in place throughout the Township of Severn

The Seasonal Load Restrictions By-law restricts loads on most Township roads to a maximum of five tonnes per axle. 

Load restrictions are put into place each year in the spring to protect our roads when they may be weakened by excess water in the road base and can then be damaged by heavy vehicles. Once the roads are determined to be structurally sound, load restrictions are lifted. Passenger vehicles are exempt from these restrictions.

Load restriction periods are weather dependent and will be in effect until May 31, 2023 unless otherwise noted on our website.
