Oversize Loads / Weight Restrictions

Seasonal Weight Restrictions

The starting for Spring Load Restrictions has been announced by the Commissioner of Transportation.

Spring weight restrictions for the Central Zone (south of TH 210 and TH 18 in Crow Wing County) end Friday April 17, 2017 at 12:01 A.M.  However due to poor subgrade conditions CR 129, CR 132, CR 139, CR 144, CR 148, CR 149 will remain posted at 5 tons and CSAH 26 at 7 tons until Monday May 1, 2017.   Spring weight restrictions for the North-Central Frost Zone (north of TH 210 and TH 18 in Crow Wing County) end Monday May 1, 2017 at 12:01 AM.  However, due to poor subgrade conditions the following roads will remain posted at 5 tons: CSAH 36 (east of TH 6 to Aitkin County Line), CR 106, CR 105 and CR 141.  Spruce Grove Rd and Burgstaler Rd in Unorganized Dean Lake Township will also remain posted at 5 tons until subgrade conditions improve. Overweight permits are not issued during seasonal weight restrictions.  

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. 

Check the map for weight restrictions per axle for county roads.          

Cooperation and compliance with the legal posted limits is needed to minimize unnecessary damage to our roads.
