Monroe County weight limits start Monday

The Monroe County Highway Department will implement seasonal weight restrictions on all county trunk highways beginning Monday, March 5.

Restrictions become effective upon the placement of signs. The restrictions limit vehicle weight to six tons per single axle and 10 tons per any two axles spaced less than eight feet apart.

Seasonal weight restrictions are placed each spring to reduce damage to the roadway when the roadbed becomes unstable as frost as leaves the ground.

Restrictions will remain in effect until the roadbed dries out and stabilizes and the signs are removed.

For more information, contact the Monroe County Highway Department, 803 Washington St., Sparta, at 269-8740 or [email protected]
