Road Weight Restrictions

Permits may be obtained through Roadata Serivces Ltd. Please contact them by phone at 1-888-444-9288 or visit their website for all inquires about overweight/over-dimensional permits, including TAC permits.

The City imposes road weight restrictions to prevent damage to our roads.

It is the operators’ responsibility to be aware of road weight restrictions. Road restrictions may be changed without notice.

If you are able to break down your loads (for example: water, pipes, tiles, gravel, fill, concrete mixers, solid waste), a permit is not required. All current road bans within the City must be adhered to.

Email permits for overweight/over-dimensional loads will no longer be issued after March 1, 2020. Annual permits issued for 2020 expired on March 1, 2020.

After March 1, 2020, permits for non-divisible overweight/over-dimensional loads will only be approved through Roadata Services Ltd. or TRAVIS - see TRAVIS login page here and TRAVIS FAQ page here.
