Seasonal weight restrictions are in effect for trunk highways in Monroe County starting Monday, March 5. Restrictions limit vehicle weight to six tons per single axle and 10 tons per any two axles spaced fewer than eight feet apart.
The restrictions, which become effective upon placement of signs, are established each spring to reduce damage to the roadway when the roadbed becomes unstable as frost is leaving the ground. They will remain in effect until the roadbed dries and stabilizes.
Exceptions exist, and operators are encouraged to contact the Monroe County Highway Department at 608-269-8740 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
