Spring Road Restrictions
Restrictions generally take effect sometime in March of each season in the RM of Springfield. Restrictions are weather dependent and based on the timing of the spring thaw.
All roads within the RM of Springfield will be restricted to 65% of normal axle loading unless otherwise posted. See our website for maps of Oakbank, Dugald and Rural areas for restrictions.
The purpose of Spring Road Restrictions is to protect roadways from damage during spring thaw conditions. The Council requests the co-operation of its citizens and the commercial industry.
