Seasonal Load Restrictions to End
Web posted May 14, 2019
Spring weight restrictions for the Central Frost Zone (south of TH 210 and TH 18 in Crow Wing County) and the North-Central Frost Zone (north of TH 210 and TH 18 in Crow Wing County) will end Tuesday, May 14, 2018 at 12:01 A.M. However, due to poor soil conditions, restrictions will remain in effect for gravel roads in the northeast portion of the county including: CSAH 36, CR 105, CR 106 and CR 141 as well as Spruce Grove Rd and Burgstaler Rd until at least Memorial Day due to saturate sub soils and frost boils.
Minnesota Statute 169.87 establishes weight restrictions. The weight on any single axle shall not exceed 5 tons on any unpaved street or highway; or 10 tons on a paved street or highway unless posted otherwise between the dates set by the Commissioner of Transportation.
Cooperation and compliance with the legal posted limits is needed to minimize unnecessary damage to our roads.
