Spring Thaw Information

The purpose of this message is to inform you that the 2018 thaw in Québec begins on march 5th for zone 1.

Note that the predicted starting date of thaw period for the zone 2 and zone 3 are respectively the 19th and the 26th of March.

During this period, authorized load limits are reduced because the road network load bearing capacity is weakened. Restrictions vary between 8% and 20% according to the vehicle’s type of axles and configuration. For more information, please consult the “Thaw Period – Official dates” page in the “Trucking” section of the of the Ministère des Transports, de la Mobilité durable et de l’Électrification des transports web site.
