Axle Weight Project Update

October 11, 2017 at 11:58 AM

The MTO has committed to opening scales for the sole purpose of collecting data points for the OSSGA axle weight project. The lights at the scale will NOT be on or flashing as this would cause a traffic back-up. Trucks must enter the scale when the lights are off. They will then be weighed, recorded and be on their way. This should take just a few minutes.

If you have or hire truckers that are part of the OSSGA pilot program, who run past the Trafalgar TIS or the Gravenhurst TIS, please instruct them to be weighed at one of the dates provided.

It is very important that we collect this data.

If you have any questions please contact Mike Scott at
