Temporary Weight Restrictions
Pursuant to Section 349.16 Wisconsin State Statues, the Price County Highway Department will be imposing temporary weight restrictions on various County Trunk Highways effective, Friday, March 6, 2020. Restrictions will begin at 12:01 pm. Signs will be placed at various intersections advising the public that weight restrictions are in effect on that specific highway.
If melting snow or rain causes thawing at an unexpected rate the restrictions may be applied earlier, please watch for the signs.
These weight restrictions are for County Trunk Highways only. Any weight restrictions on State, City and Village or Town roads are managed by each individual municipality. Special concessions may be made on a case by case basis through the issuance of a single or multiple trip permit. The temporary weight restrictions for Price County highways are as follows:
6 tons per axle, maximum 18 tons gross
You may refer to the 2020 Weight Restrictions Packet link below for a map showing the restricted routes as well as permitting information or contact the department’s main office at (715) 339-3081. These restrictions will remain in place until the highways have regained their strength and the frost has dissipated. Notices will be posted when the seasonal weight restrictions have been removed.
April 17, 2020 UPDATE County Highway S is now posted at 6 tons Gross Vehicle Weight due to severe roadbed deterioration.
Please note the section of CTH A from USH 8 to Park Street, in the Village of Prentice, has been added to the restricted highways this year. Overweight vehicles can access the Village of Prentice Via CTH X to CTH A.
