OHV Pilot Project To Launch In 6 Communities Throughout The Province


On September 24th, 2018, Hon. Lloyd Hines, Minister of Transportation Infrastructure and Renewal announced that effective October 1st, 2018, Nova Scotia will be launching an off-highway vehicle (OHV) pilot in 6 communities across the province to enhance trail connectivity. The pilot project enables OHVs to access the shoulders of roadways, and the roadway itself where necessary, in order to safely travel in select areas from one OHV trail to another. The 6 communities selected for the 3-year pilot are Porters Lake, New Germany, Weymouth, Walton, Sherbrooke, and Gabarus. Only registered, licensed and insured OHVs can operate on the shoulder of the roadway in the 6 pilot areas and drivers must adhere to a speed limit of 25km/hr. No passenger on an OHV operating in the pilot area can be younger than 9 years old. For more information, visit: https://novascotia.ca/ohv-pilot/
