Truck Routes

Designated truck routes are established and signed to restrict truck traffic from using certain streets within the City. This protects the physical structure of the roadway, protects residential neighborhoods and areas not well suited to the size, noise and nuisance factors associated with large trucks, and addresses a commodity of safety concerns. From time to time, the City updates the truck route map to reflect changes in the road network. Please ensure you review this page on a regular basis to have the most up-to-date Truck Route Map.

The City's Traffic and Highways Regulation Bylaw 1993 No. 5000 regulates the routes, vehicle sizes, weights, and goods. Truck route signage, both permissive and restrictive, is strategically located throughout the City to guide trucking companies. Trucking companies are required to apply for permits when they exceed any of the routing, size, or weight restrictions.

House Moving Companies

If you are moving a building or mobile home onto a lot or mobile home park, you must have an approved building permit prior to the move.
