Axle Weight Pilot Project to Continue in 2018

February 25, 2018 at 2:33 PM

On behalf of The Ontario Sand, Stone and Gravel Association (OSSGA), The Ontario Road Builders Association (ORBA) and The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO), we would like to thank you for your participation in the Aggregate Axle Weight Pilot Project in 2017.

With your help we have been able to accumulate and analyze very valuable data that will help us achieve a solution to this decade old problem that is workable for all stakeholders.

Although the project was a success in 2017, we still need more data.  OSSGA, ORBA and MTO have agreed to continue the project for another year under the current deferred enforcement policies of MTO.  This extension will allow us to accumulate more valuable data that will be used to find a solution.

We would ask that the trucks that were enrolled in the program in 2017 not remove their stickers and continue in the project for 2018.

We are also inviting more participants to join the study in 2018. More trucks and more participants will make the data collected even more valuable.

Please forward this note along to anyone who may be interested in joining the program and have them contact Moreen Miller at 705-644-2826 ( for more information.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a solution to this issue in 2018.
