Spring Road Restrictions begin Friday, March 15, 2019
BEGIN 12:01 AM, FRIDAY, MARCH 15, 2019
Kandiyohi County seasonal load restrictions begin at 12:01 am on Friday, March 15, 2019.
The restrictions will be effective countywide. Seasonal load restrictions protect roads
during the spring thaw, when road strength is at its lowest point of the year.
By state law, all non-posted County paved roads are open to a normal, 10-ton per axle
loads. Also by state law, all non-posted Township roads and County gravel roads are
restricted to a 5-ton per axle load limitation. However, most county gravel roads are posted
to a higher, 7-ton per axle load limit and will be posted accordingly. Weight limits may
change during the thaw period depending on the condition of a roadway. If they do,
postings will be changed and the new posted weight will govern the legal weight on the
roadway. Always check for a posted limit. There will be no overweight permits issued
during this time.
