The Public Works Department issues two types of permits. The first ones are issued for vehicles and serve the purpose of insuring secure transportation of overweight and oversized loads while protecting Prescott and Russell’s road network.
- Permits for vehicles or loads exceeding prescribed limits (Wide Load)
- Permits for reduced loads (weight limits during thawing period)
The OPP, as well as the Ministry of Transportation of Ontario are responsible to implement the law during the reduced load period, as well as for overweight loads.
The second type of permit is to authorise construction works in regards to ditches, driveways or road cuts in the surroundings of the county roads.
