Spring is coming.
As temperatures rise and the conditions of the winter roads deteriorate, the RMWB is taking safety precautions to try and lengthen each road’s use.
The municipality has decreased the weight limit on the La Loche Winter Trail to 5,000 kg less than a week after restricting vehicles over that weight to traveling the road at night only.
The RMWB is also saying that a speed limit of 50 km/h must be obeyed unless signs indicate otherwise. Drivers are also reminded that there are no regular services along the road like cell service, gas stations, or police patrols, so always be prepared for emergencies.
