Washington County sets spring weight restrictions for county roads

Spring weight restrictions will go into effect on Washington County roads at 12:01 a.m. Friday, March 10. Restrictions will be in effect for eight weeks, unless extraordinary conditions require extending them.  

Any county road without a posted weight limit is 10 tons per axle.  

During spring weight restrictions, Washington County does not issue permits for transport over the axle weight limit, except in cases of a serious public health emergency. According to an executive order, a state of emergency exists in Minnesota, and vehicles used to pump or transport sewage from septic systems are exempted from the seasonal load restrictions, while providing emergency septic system pumping services.

Washington County road users may call 651-430-8355 for a recorded message with the latest spring weight restriction information.

For additional information, call Washington County Public Works at 651-430-4300.
