Residents in South Algonquin are being reminded of an annual change on local roads coming in a few weeks.

Every year on March 1st since 2015, the South Algonquin Township has had a load restriction on some of their roads during the spring thaw. The restrictions are effective until May 15th each year and includes 61 roads in the township.

The township says the purpose for the load restriction is to protect roads from heavy load damage during the spring thaw.
