New Heavy Truck Restrictions in Bolton Core

- By-law restricts heavy trucks on Highway 50/Queen Street and King Street

BRAMPTON, ON. (October 30, 2015) – The Region of Peel is implementing truck restrictions in the downtown Bolton area. Heavy trucks will be restricted on the following Regional Roads in Bolton, effective November 30, 2015:

  • Highway 50/Queen Street (Regional Road 50) from Emil Kolb Parkway (Regional Road 150) to Healey Road.
  • King Street (Regional Road 9) from Coleraine Drive (Regional Road 150) to Albion Vaughan Road.

Details and a map are available at peelregion.ca/trucksinbolton

"Heavy truck" definition: a commercial motor vehicle with a weight when unloaded, of three tonnes or more, or when loaded, of five tonnes or more.

Heavy trucks are encouraged to use Emil Kolb Parkway/Coleraine Drive to bypass the Bolton downtown core. Local collections and deliveries are exempt from the heavy truck restriction as some trucks still need local access, but truck-turning restrictions will remain at the King Street and Queen Street intersection for such vehicles.  

Downtown bypass routes:

  • Northbound  – Mayfield Road to Coleraine Drive to Emil Kolb Parkway.
  • Southbound – Emil Kolb Parkway to Coleraine Drive to Mayfield Road.
  • Eastbound – Coleraine Drive to Mayfield Road to Albion Vaughan Road.
  • Westbound – Albion Vaughan Road to Mayfield Drive to Coleraine Drive.

Note: Coleraine Drive south of Mayfield Road is also truck restricted.
