Spring thaw (road conditions)

The Quebec Ministry of Transport reminds operators of heavy vehicles and shippers that, as each year, authorized load limits are reduced during the Spring thaw period in order to take into account the weaker load bearing capacity of the road network during that period.

For the 2020 Spring thaw period, the official date of the beginning and end of the load restriction period in thaw zone #1, which is in our region is set from:

  • Monday, March 9 (00:01 a.m.) to Friday, May 8 (11:59 p.m.)


(The start and end dates of the load restriction period may be adjusted depending on weather conditions.
