To keep our municipal roads in tip-top shape, Middlesex Centre has a reduced load limit in place during the early spring (half-load season), under by-law 2018-092.

Seasonal load restrictions are put into place to protect our roads from damage or failure during the spring when the winter’s frost is thawing and the snow melt and rain have saturated the road base material. Damage done to roads is usually deeper than just on the surface and can end up costing hundreds of thousands, or potentially millions, of dollars to repair.

From March 1 to April 30, inclusive, any vehicle travelling on the following stretches of road is restricted to a reduced load limit of a maximum weight of five (5) tonnes per axle (map follows):
