The Saskatchewan government says spring road bans come into effect across much of the province on Monday.
Highways minister David Marit says road bans are resuming next week to protect highways from damage during spring thaw.
The road bans take effect midnight Sunday across Southern Saskatchewan and the Kindersley, North Battleford and Saskatoon areas.
Road bans are also in effect in many rural municipalities in these areas.
Road bans are expected to take effect across the rest of the province on April 16th.
The reduced weights allowed for trucks to haul commodities amount to 10 to 15 percent to protect fragile roads in the spring.
