Seasonal highway load restrictions coming soon
Due to continued warm weather patterns, seasonal load restrictions may be implemented on North Dakota state highways in the near future.
The North Dakota Department of Transportation recommends moving heavy loads before load restrictions are placed on state highways.
Depending on weather, the NDDOT may place restrictions on some highways in the southwest corner of the state as early as the week of Feb. 6, according to a press release. These restrictions will remain in effect until roadbeds have stabilized enough to carry normal traffic.
Statewide seasonal load restriction information is available by calling 511 or online at www.dot.nd.gov/travel-info. Load restriction email updates are also available at http://www.dot.nd.gov/roadreport/loadlimit/loadlimitinfo.asp.
