Sign of spring #4: Highway weight restrictions lifted

Temporary spring weight restrictions have been lifted from all Prince Edward Island roads.

Restrictions are put in place to protect roads from heavy traffic when the ground underneath them is unstable during the spring thaw. Limiting truck weights reduces damage to highways.

Restrictions may still be posted on some local sections as required.
