Public Works advises that Half Load Hauling Restrictions are now in effect for the roads in the Municipality of Huron Shores. On a seasonal (spring thaw period) basis, roads in the Municipality become too soft to withstand the weight of fully loaded trucks. It is imperative that the Municipality makes an effort to reduce the damage to the roads, thereby protecting the asset and limiting expensive repairs to the road network. Please assist us in reducing repairs to our roads by not having heavy deliveries to your property during this time of year.
Due to the mild weather experienced earlier this winter, frost heaves had already presented prior to the current spring conditions. The travelling public is advised to take extra care and reduce speed when driving on municipal roads. Public Works personnel are continuing to patrol, monitor and deal with situations as they arise. Be alert for public works equipment, personnel, oncoming vehicles, and heed traffic cones and barricades. Please drive with caution and according to conditions.
