Advance notice of seasonal weight restrictions
February 26, 2020
The Monroe County Highway Department advises residents and other highway users to be prepared for the annual limitation of the weight of vehicles travelling on county highways. Restrictions are placed each spring when the frozen ground begins to thaw, leaving the roadbed weakened and the highway vulnerable to severe damage from heavy loads. Restrictions are placed in order to protect the structural integrity of the highway and to preserve the public investment in the highway system.
