The Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports informs you that the dates of the thaw period in Quebec are modified for zones 2 and 3. Therefore, loads limits restrictions applying in these two zones will end at the following dates:
Zone 2: March 27th – May 26th
Zone 3: March 27th - May 26th
Dates for zone 1 remain unchanged: February 27th – April 28th
During this period, authorized load limits are reduced because the road network load bearing capacity is weakened. Restrictions vary between 8% and 20% according to the vehicle’s type of axles and configuration.
For any additional information please consult the “Thaw Period - Official dates” page in the “Trucking” section of the of the Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports web site: https://www.transports.gouv.qc.ca/fr/entreprises-partenaires/ent-camionnage/degel/Pages/Periode-de-degel.aspx
