Weight limits set on county highways

The Shawano County Highway Department announced the seasonal posting of spring weight limits on various County roads in Shawano County. The weight limits became effective on Wednesday, March 20, 2019. Haulers will need to watch for the signs restricting load limits.

A list of the posted roads is available at http://www.co.shawano.wi.us/. The weight restrictions are six tons gross load for single axle, 10 tons gross load for tandem axle; maximum gross weight is 26 tons.

Seasonal weight restrictions are placed on specific highways during the spring thaw period. The restrictions are placed to prevent damage to the pavement structure.
