WisDOT announces weight limits for North Central Region state highways


The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) North Central Region today announced the seasonal posting of weight limits on area state highways. The weight restrictions are 6 tons gross load for single axle vehicles and 10 tons gross load for tandem axle vehicles (any two axles under 8 feet apart). The maximum gross weight is 24 tons. 

Weight restrictions will be effective at Noon on Monday, March 20, 2023 on the following highways:

  • WIS 52, Marathon County, from Little Elm Rd to Shawano County line.
  • WIS 52, Shawano County, from Marathon County line to US 45.
  • WIS 52, Langlade County, from WIS 55 to North Langlade County line.
  • WIS 52, Forest County, from South Forest County line to Smith Road.
  • WIS 107, Marathon County, from Marathon County Road A to the Lincoln County line.
  • WIS 107, Lincoln County, from Marathon County line to WIS 64.

Seasonal weight restrictions (springtime posted roads) are placed on specific highways during the spring thaw period. The restrictions are added to prevent damage to the pavement structure.
