2018 Spring Load Restrictions

The Lyon County Highway Department will be keeping Spring Load Restrictions on all gravel and posted paved roads until Monday, May 7th.  MnDOT has ended their restrictions after 8 weeks but due to the early start of postings and unseasonably cold and wet month of April, Lyon County will be keeping postings up for one additional week to help preserve its gravel roads and pavements.

Lyon County Engineer FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE SPRING LOAD RESTRICTIONS March 7, 2018

Lyon County is announcing that truck spring load restrictions will be starting Thursday
March 8, 2018 for all Lyon County Highways. The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced the starting date of spring load
restrictions in the SOUTH FROST ZONES starting on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 12:01 a.m.  County employees are scheduled to install weight limit signs on restricted paved roads on Thursday.  Gravel county roads will not be posted as they are restricted to 5-ton axle weights during the spring load restrictions period by statute. In general, spring load restrictions on local roads (county, city and township roads) follow the
same dates as the State Trunk Highways, however any local road can be restricted at any time
during the year so long as the restricted load limit is posted. This depends on the condition of the
roads. The local road authority can keep spring restrictions on longer if they deem them
necessary.  MnDOT can keep state highways weight-restricted for a maximum of 8 consecutive weeks. The Lyon County 2018 Spring Load Restriction map can be viewed at the Lyon County website at
www.lyonco.org.  A regional map showing neighboring counties’ road postings is also available. Please contact the Lyon County Highway Department at (507) 532-8205 for further information.
