117. Every person authorized to build or improve a bridge must, at the end of the work, post at each end of the bridge the following elements: hazard markers signalling the limits of the bridge deck, the indication of a narrow crossing, the maximum load the bridge may support based on the types of vehicles and the speed allowed for crossing the bridge. The foregoing also applies to a person who repairs a bridge.
All signs and tab signs must be installed with care, facing the vehicles, so as to be perfectly visible even at night. No obstacle such as vegetation or a snow bank must reduce the visibility of the signs or tab signs. They must comply with the standards in the Guide de signalisation routière sur les terres du domaine de l’État, published by the Minister responsible for the administration of the Sustainable Forest Development Act (chapter A-18.1).
A vehicle whose total loaded mass exceeds the mass posted on site pursuant to the first paragraph may not travel on the bridge of a road.
