Spring Weight Restrictions Roads Closed to 5000 kg

SSRCE Transportation – As of Monday, March 2, TIR Spring Weight Restrictions will be implemented for Lunenburg and Queens counties. What does that mean for school buses? If you live on a back road and it gets posted at 5000 kg that means buses are not permitted to travel and we have to use our back road closure plan. 
We receive an update of weight restricted roads each day from TIR. In turn each evening a list of Roads Closed/Not Traveled by Bus will be posted​ by SSRCE Transportation. Basic rule of thumb is, if you see your road posted at 5000 kg we can’t travel, back road closure plans will be put in place :endtweet
