Spring Weight Limits
Spring truck weight restrictions on state highways will begin Friday, March 9 for Minnesota's central frost zone including; Todd, Morrison, Mille Lacs and southern Crow Wing Counties.
Winter load increases and overweight permits remain in place for the state's north-central and north frost zones.
MnDOT limits truck weights to prevent damage to roads weakened during the spring thaw.
Ending dates for spring load restrictions are established by monitoring roadway strength as weather conditions change. All changes are made with a minimal three-day notice.
