Road Restrictions

Spring Weight Restrictions

Municipal road restrictions as well as weights and measures legislation are enforced as set out by Municipal By-Law. In the RM of Hanover there are designated "No Truck Routes" and "Spring Road Restrictions".

Seasonal spring road restrictions are announced in March through advertisements in the local media, as well as the Municipal Office Bulletin Board, Community LED signs, and social media. Advisement letters are also forwarded to builders, suppliers, contractors, and aggregate haulers for assistance. Roads that are restricted are appropriately signed. Generally AST and asphalt roads under the responsibility of the municipality are subject to some type of restriction.

Spring road restrictions are in effect as of Wednesday, March 27th, 2024 at 6:00 a.m.

Spring road restrictions will be lifted as of Tuesday, May 21, 2024 at 6:00 a.m.

The Rural Municipality of Hanover has posted certain roads at 65% of the normal axle loading's on B1 Municipal roads. All affected roads are identified in red on the interactive map (link below) and will be posted with signs and those restrictions will continue until signs are removed. All road restrictions are subject to change.

Any questions or concerns regarding spring weight restrictions should be directed to the By-law Enforcement Officer at 204-326-8656 or 204-346-7131. To report any other traffic violations, please contact your local RCMP detachment.


Aggregate Mining & Haul Routes

All aggregate mining and transportation activities are regulated in the RM of Hanover by way of provincial legislation.

A part of this legislation allows for the assessment of a mining fee for all aggregate excavated from a property in the municipality. A transport fee is applied for the hauling of any aggregate on municipal roads established as Haul Routes.

The aggregate mining levy is charged in lieu of improvement taxes on the property. The Province of Manitoba changed its legislation in the mid 1980's to allow municipalities to levy fees in lieu of personal property taxes on aggregate pits and equipment.

The By-law Enforcement Officer will from time to time stop trucks to ensure that load limits and travelling on designated haul routes are being adhered to.

Any questions or concerns regarding haul routes should be directed to the By-law Enforcement Officer at 326-8656 or 346-7131. To report any other traffic violations, please contact your local RCMP detachment.
