With warm temperatures in the forecast, the spring thaw will start to happen quickly in the RM of Dauphin.

During spring it’s common to have washouts, soft spots, or water running over roads.

There are no immediate concerns of flooding or washouts, but the RM is asking the public to respect the current conditions of the roads and limit heavy loads during the warmer temperatures.

Limiting heavy truck traffic on roads during spring thaw protects the roads from unnecessary damage. That can allow a quick return to normal road stabilization.

The RM is advising the public to be aware of any barricades or markers that are put out.
