FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SPRING LOAD RESTRICTIONS
March 4, 2020
Lyon County is announcing that truck spring load restrictions will be starting Friday
March 6, 2020 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 Friday, March 6, 2020 at 12:01 a.m.
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 2020 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.
