MILLE LACS COUNTY SPRING LOAD RESTRICTIONS

MILLE LACS COUNTY SPRING LOAD RESTRICTIONS
Spring load restrictions will be placed on county roads concurrent with Mn/DOT restrictions. Again this year, Mn/DOT will place restrictions based on thawing degree days and the weather forecast. Typically, if a warm spell is forecasted, restrictions will be imposed with as little as a three-day notice.
This notice only applies to roads under County government jurisdiction. Truck operators are urged to call 1-800-723-6543 frequently for an update on Mn/DOT road postings. Information can also be found on the internet at www.mrr.dot.state.mn.us/research/seasonal_load_limits/sllindex.asp.
County paved roads will generally follow the Mn/DOT posting dates with signs specifying the maximum axle load. All County gravel roads are restricted by law to 5 ton axle weight on announcement from Mn/DOT unless posted otherwise. County spring load restriction maps are available at the office of the County Engineer, 565 Eighth Street NE, Milaca, MN 56353 (no charge), and on the Mille Lacs County website at www.co.mille-lacs.mn.us > Departments > Public Works > Spring Load Restrictions.
