Restrictions will limit vehicles to 100%, 75%, 70% or 50% of legal axle loading.

Overweight permits will not be granted, the ministry says, and all term overweight permits will be invalid during the restrictions.

Trucking and transportation companies, as well as the public, are told to plan accordingly. 

Environment Canada is forecasting above zero weather through to next week, with temperatures in the low teens.
