MN DOT Seasonal Load Limit Notification for NC Frost Zone and N Frost Zone

All gravel surfaced roads will be restricted to 5 tons per axle. All bituminous surfaced roads will be posted to 5, 7, 9 or 10 tons per axle. The spring load restrictions are based on gross axle weights and includes the weight of both vehicle and its load. A map of the roads within the two zones and a schedule of road postings are available below.

Additional information on weight restrictions can be seen at MnDOT's website.

During the spring season the structure of the roadway is weakened and more vulnerable to damage. Restrictions limit the legal gross axle weights of vehicles and reduce the amount of damage they do to the roadways. No permits for overweight axle loads will be issued during this time. 

To report a suspected overweight vehicle, please contact the Sheriff's Office at 333-9111 or the Highway Department at 333-8173.
