Seasonal Weight Restrictions

The Minnesota Department of Transportation announces the start of 2020 Spring Weight Restrictions

Winter load increases will end and start spring load restrictions in the CENTRAL frost zone (south of Trunk Highways 210 and 18 in Crow Wing County) begin at 12:01 AM  Monday, March 9, 2020.  Restrictions for NORTH-CENTRAL frost zone (north of Trunk Highways 210 and 18 in Crow Wing County) begin at 12:01 AM on Friday March 13, 2020. 

No overweight moving permits are issued during the restriction period.

Minnesota Statute 169.87 estbalishes 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 Transporation.    

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