Highway Weight Restrictions

Effective noon (12:01 p.m.) on Monday, February 20, 2017 all vehicles operating on County Highways in Sawyer County will be restricted to 20 Ton Gross Vehicle Weight, 4 ton per axle.  The weight restriction is for all county highways except County Road B.  School buses and trucks hauling milk, fuel, and septic are exempt from the seasonal load limits in Sawyer County.  A twenty-four (24) hour notice will be given if a change is necessary due to the weather.
This notice does not include town roads.  Townships will need to be contacted directly for the status of their seasonal weight restrictions.
Thank you,
Gary Gedart
