Oversize Loads / Weight Restrictions

Seasonal Weight Restrictions

Seasonal weight restrictions are regulated by the Commissioner of Transportation. Cooperation and compliance with the legal posted limits are needed to minimize unnecessary damage to our roads.  No overweight permits are issued during seasonal weight restrictions, with the exception of vehicles used to pump or transport sewage from septic systems as noted in Emergency Executive Order 23-04.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced spring load restrictions in the CENTRAL zone (south of TH 210/TH 18 in Crow Wing County) begin Wednesday, March 22, 2023, at 12:01 AM. 

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has not yet announced the starting date for load restriction limits in the NORTH-CENTRAL zone (north of TH 210/TH 18 in Crow Wing County).

Ending dates for spring load restrictions will be posted when received from the State.

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.
