The District and the Town of Bracebridge, have established winter heavy truck restrictions for High Falls Road (Muskoka Road 50) from November 1 to April 1st.

The District says that during the last two years, there were nearly 30 truck incidents on High Falls Road. These incidents required tow-trucks and road/lane closures to accommodate recovery efforts.

Snow and slush accumulates quickly, and even with regular plowing and sanding, heavy trucks simply cannot negotiate the steeply graded portions in the winter months.

Effective tomorrow, trucks with 2 or more axles are prohibited from using High Falls Road until April 1st
