SEASONAL WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS – 2017
Effective at 9 a.m. central time on Friday, February 17th, 2017 the Gogebic County Road Commission Spring Weight Restrictions will be in effect.
Local Road System – Due to the minimal surface support and frost heave susceptibility on the Local Road system (including gravel roads), the 5 ton limit shall be enforced.
County Primary Road System - shall follow the Michigan Frost Laws that require a 35% reduction in axle loading. This allows major principal routes through the County/Townships to remain at the normal weight restricted amount while reducing the loading on local roads.
The Gogebic County Road Commission shall monitor the frost action on our roads, and when conditions warrant removal of the 5 ton restrictions, notice shall be provided to revert back to the 35% reduction for the remainder of the weight restricted season.
If you have any questions please call our office at (906) 667-0233.
Dates will be determined each year by the Gogebic County Road Commission. Michigan Frost Laws will apply. The following, which are all weather roads and are exempt from weight restrictions:
