Seasonal weight restrictions are about to go into effect in Spokane County.
Road become weakened during a cycle of freezing and thawing, making roads vulnerable to damage at this time of year. Weight restrictions reduce the need for increased road maintenance.
Effected roads will be posted with signs indicating the maximum allowable weight. Typically, these restrictions don’t apply to the average car or pickup but commercial and construction vehicles may need to lighten their loads to comply with the restrictions.
Spokane County commercial vehicle enforcement officers will be on patrol and violators will be fined!
