Reduced Load Period Model Overview Training

This is a quick course that will take less than 60 minutes of your time to complete before using the RLP model forms.

MTO (The Ontario Ministry of Transportation) and Good Roads are partnering to work together to encourage Good Roads member municipalities/First Nations to support and adopt MTO’s RLP Onset and Removal Model supported by data from its Road Weather Information System (RWIS).

MTO’s system allows municipalities to access frost depth, moisture, and temperature data by adopting the RLP Onset and Removal Model. The model will allow municipalities to optimize the timing of RLPs, including shortening the duration when conditions permit, which will help support the agriculture, agri-business and trucking industry, while protecting road infrastructure.

Please note, access to the course may take up to 24 hours following registration.

This is ideal for: Public Works Directors, Road Supervisors, Directors, Transportation, and County Engineers
