LOAD RESTRICTIONS ARE IN EFFECT AS OF MARCH 15, 2019

​The Municipality of Neebing will protect undue damage to Municipal Highways by imposing weight restrictions for vehicles travelling on our roadways whenever conditions warrant it.  It is normal for spring thaw conditions to warrant weight restrictions which may be imposed at any time when the thaw commences and will continue to be in place until the frost has left the Municipal Highway roadbed.  These restrictions are put in place from approximately mid-March to approximately mid-June.  Please see the excerpt below from By-Law 943-2012 for some information on exemptions.  For the complete By-Law document, click here.
