From time to time Alberta's roads are restricted because of construction, maintenance or seasonal conditions such as the spring thaw.
Please see the Licenses, Permits and Applications service for programs associated with the use of provincial highways.
This section provides information about route restrictions due to dimensional constraints of highways because of overhead structures and bridge maintenance projects.
Legal weights and dimensions
This section provides information for the trucking industry about the weight and dimension regulations in Alberta. Legal weights and dimensions are needed to balance the capacity and geometric capabilities of the infrastructure with maximum economic benefits while ensuring road safety.
Alberta's roads are restricted to reduced-axle-weights due to seasonal conditions such as the spring thaw. Restrictions help preserve the life span of Alberta's roads.
