Road restrictions in effect
FOLEY — Seasonal road restrictions on Stearns and Benton County Highways went into effect midnight Feb. 21. These restrictions help minimize unnecessary damage to roadways and remain in effect until further notice.
Minnesota Statute 169.87 establishes weight restrictions. The weight on any single axle shall not exceed five tons of any unpaved street or highway; or 10 tons on a paved stree or highway unless posted otherwise between the dates set by the Commissioner of Transportation.
All restriction limits are gross axle weights. No overweight permits will be issued to vehicles that exceed posted limits.
Questions regarding specific routes should be directed to Benton or Stearns County public works. Maps with the posted axle weight limits can be found at http://www.co.benton.mn.us/Public_Works/index.php and http://co.stearns.mn.us/PropertyRoads/SeasonalRoadInformation.
