It’s official- seasonal weight restrictions are in effect throughout the county.
Every year at this time, roadway surfaces and the structures beneath become weakened by the freeze and thaw cycle, making roads vulnerable to damage.
Weight restrictions reduce the need for road maintenance and car repairs. Restrictions will be in place for approximately six weeks.
Effected roads in the county are posted with signs indicating maximum weights. Typically, these restrictions do not apply to the average car or pickup, but commercial and construction vehicles may need to lighten their loads to comply with the restrictions. And here’s the part you need to know; Spokane County commercial vehicle enforcement officers will be on patrol and violators will be fined!
