Load restrictions are put into effect on our roads each year. In the spring, roads are weakened by excess water in the road base and can be damaged by heavy vehicles. Once the road is determined to be structurally sound, load restrictions may be lifted.

2020 Load Restrictions

Effective Sunday March 1st, 2020 all Municipality of Meaford Roads will be under a reduced load (5 tonnes per axle) period.

Load restriction periods are weather-dependant. Restrictions are in place from March 1st to May 15th, but can be extended as late as May 31st due to the weather.

The Municipality will issue updates to define restriction periods based on seasonal weather conditions.


Due to the Municipal office closures to protect our staff and community from COVID-19, no further load restriction exemptions are being offered at this time.
