Traffic, Roads, & Bridges

Due to some unseasonable mild conditions in the northern part of the County of Lennox and Addington, seasonal load restrictions will begin a bit earlier this year. On Tuesday, February 27th, Schedule B - Reduced Load Restrictions (North Map) on designated County roads will be in effect. 

During this seasonal load restricted period, commercial vehicles or trailers with a gross vehicle weight in excess of five tonnes per axle are prohibited on roads where restriction signage is posted. Heavy vehicles that exceed this weight limit on restricted-load roadways during the spring-thaw period are subject to fines. Seasonal load restrictions protect the road base from damage caused by wheel loads of heavy vehicles and increase the life cycle of county and municipal roadways.

Should it be required to transport loads on County roads during the restriction dates, a permit is required from the County of Lennox and Addington. For restriction details and permitting on local municipal roads within the County of Lennox and Addington, please contact the associated municipality.
