Oversize Loads / Weight Restrictions

Seasonal Weight Restrictions

Spring Load Restrictions end dates have been announced by the Commissioner of Transportation.

Spring weight restrictions for the Central Zone (south of TH 210 and TH 18 in Crow Wing County) will end on on Friday May 13, 2022 at 12:01 A.M.  Spring weight restrictions for the North-Central Frost Zone (north of TH 210 and TH 18 in Crow Wing County) will end on Monday May 16, 2022 at 12:01 AM.  Restrictions on gravel roads may remain in effect dependent on soil conditions.  Updates will be posted closer to the restriction end dates.  

Cooperation and compliance with the legal posted limits is needed to minimize unnecessary damage to our roads.

Minnesota Statute 169.87 establishes weight restrictions. The weight on any single axle shall not exceed 5 tons on any unpaved street or highway; or 10 tons on a paved street or highway unless posted otherwise between the dates set by the Commissioner of Transportation. 

Check the map for spring weight restrictions per axle for county roads.
