Spring Load Restrictions will go into effect on all McLeod County Highways on Friday, (March 15th) and will remain in effect until further notice.
Officials say the restrictions protect the investments we have made in our highways and help hold off costly pavement repair and unnecessary reconstruction.
The restrictions limit the weight on any single axle to five (5) tons on unpaved roads and ten (10) tons on paved roads.
Some paved roads will be reduced further and posted accordingly with signs indicating maximum allowable axle loads.
Maps showing specific restrictions are available at the McLeod County Public Works Office in Hutchinson, or click here for an online map.
