Due to continued warm weather patterns, seasonal load restrictions are being implemented on North Dakota state highways, with some taking effect today and others going into effect early next week.
Depending on weather conditions, the restrictions typically remain in effect until roadbeds have stabilized enough to carry normal traffic, generally in mid-to-late May.
Burleigh County imposed 6-ton per axle limits on most of its county roads today. Adams, Richland and Hettinger Counties will enforce road restrictions beginning next Monday, March 8. Restrictions in the City of Dickenson will be implemented Tuesday, March 9. Information on road restrictions in other counties that participate in WDEA's LoadPass Permits system will be posted here.
Seasonal load restriction information for state roads is available by calling 511 or online at ND Roads.
