Temporary County Highway Weight Restrictions

Temporary Weight Restrictions

Pursuant to Section 349.16 Wisconsin State Statues, the Price County Highway Department will be imposing temporary weight restrictions on various County Trunk Highways effective, Monday, February 20, 2017. Postings will begin at 12:01 pm. Signs will be placed at various intersections advising the public that weight restrictions are in effect on that specific highway.

If melting snow or rain causes thawing at an unexpected rate the restrictions may be applied earlier, please watch for the signs.

These weight restrictions are for the County Trunk Highways only. Any weight restrictions on State, City and Village or Town roads are handled by each individual municipality. Special concessions may be made on a case by case basis through the issuance of a single or multiple trip permits. The temporary weight restrictions for Price County highways are as follows:

6 tons per axle, maximum 18 tons gross

Refer to the map below showing the restricted routes as well as permitting information or contact the department’s main office at (715) 339-3081. These restrictions will remain in place until the highways have regained their strength and the frost has dissipated. Notices will be posted when the temporary weight restrictions have been removed.
