MNDOT Increases Load Limits

Allowable winter load limits on highways in the central frost zone will increase up to 10 percent at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, Dec.11, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The central frost zone’s boundaries extend south from the southern limit of the north-central frost zone (Highway 10, Highway 210, Highway 18, Interstate 35, Highway 48 and the Wisconsin state line) to a line following and including Highway 12 from the South Dakota state line to the Hennepin County line.
Vehicles will be allowed to carry up to 10 percent more weight than the standard legal maximum loads on unrestricted highways during the winter load increase period. However, trucks must comply with current registration weight laws and not exceed registered gross weight limits.
