Winter Road Closing Information

The Brunswick Town Council has authorized the annual closing of certain town ways to any vehicle or combination of vehicles registered for a gross weight of over 23,000 pounds. Certain Town roads are posted annually to protect the roads from heavy truck traffic during early spring conditions when the roadbed first begins to thaw out and the base remains saturated with water and unable to support the wheel loads. Posting is required to prevent significant damage to the road pavement.

The road postings have historically been from about March 1 until no later than April 30th over the past 15 years. If you are planning to build a house starting in late winter you should check to see if the road giving access to your property is typically posted. Although permits are issued occasionally they are not issued to allow new construction of a home or addition. If your property’s only access is via a posted road you should plan to start the project at the end of April and not late winter or early spring.

Penalties and Exemptions
Any violation of the rules is a traffic infraction punishable by a fine of not less than $250. Certain vehicles, such as public utility, emergency, school buses, heating fuel trucks (operating in accordance with a permit issued by the Maine Department of Transportation) are exempt, and for any other heavy vehicle there is a permit process for requesting special permission to travel on these roads. For further information please contact the Public Works Department at 725-6654.
