FREDERICTON, NB – Spring weight restrictions will be lifted from routes in southern New Brunswick at midnight Sunday, May 8, and on northern roads at midnight Sunday, May 15.
THUNDER BAY, ON – City officials in Thunder Bay are shaping an anti-congestion plan by updating a 1972 weight bylaw that would divert commercial truck traffic away from the city centre.
Councillors voted March 7 to have city staff adjust the bylaw establishing truck routes within the next three months, ready to have the new traffic congestion plan in place by September.
Currently, the proposal would keep trucks over 5,000 kg off Oliver Road, Dawson Road and Arthur Street west of Highway 11/17. Drivers would instead be steered toward Hodder Avenue, Highway 11/17 and Highway 61.
Sensible spec’ing needn’t mean coyote ugly.
Three easy steps can help increase tire life dramatically.
