Trucks travelling through the R.M. of Wilton will have to follow new weight restrictions on Friday.
After midnight, the municipality moves to Wilton Primary Weight, which is similar to winter weight with the difference of Single axle at 9,100 kilograms and tandem axle at 17,000 kilograms. Travel on roads with permanent weight restrictions is still permitted at the posted limits.
People moving large trucks through the area are also reminded that the steer axle weight will also be counted towards gross vehicle weight penalties. Vehicles moving above the posted weight, or needing a tri-steer permit must get approval from Northwest Municipal Services beforehand.
Anyone looking for more information on the restrictions can be found on the NWMS website.
