Seasonal weight restrictions are now in effect for trunk highways in Monroe County. 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 went into effect on March 5, 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 highways@co.monroe.wi.us with any questions.
