Road Weight Restrictions

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office has started the enforcement of spring seasonal weight limits that are imposed by individual municipalities within Washington County.  Some roadway sections are too weak to withstand even the legal load limit during the springtime freezing and thawing period.

These roadway sections have signs posted indicating the allowable weight limits during the period normally from the second week in March till late April or early May.  The road postings are intended to minimize damage to the roadways during this critical time period. 

Local road maintenance authorities are responsible for determining exactly when their roads are either frozen or thawing and whether sections should be posted for weight limitations.  Deputies will begin to enforce these seasonal weight restrictions on roadways that are posted.

Wisconsin State Statute 348.17 relates to the violation of special weight limits and has a total forfeiture of $271.50 per violation. The Washington County Sheriff’s Office also has officers specifically trained truck inspectors that take action based upon calculating the weight overload of the vehicle in relation to the specific roadway.  The restrictions on roadway weights vary from road to road.

Here is the current list of roads under the Sheriff’s Office authority.
