Winter road-weights reach Saskatchewan

The Saskatchewan government has removed winter weight allowances on all provincial highways.

Winter weights were officially removed at 12:01 am on March 15.

Winter weights are typically put in place each year after freeze up.

They allow trucks to haul more weight on secondary weight highways during periods where roadbeds are frozen and the risk of road damage caused by heavy truck traffic is relatively low.

The winter weights are removed every spring.
