Road Bans

2024 Road Bans In Effect 8:00 AM, May 24

What are Road Bans?

Road bans are weight restrictions that reduce the maximum weight allowed on any carrying axle of a truck or trailer by the percentage specified. Road bans reduce the amount of damage to County roads during spring break-up when moisture-filled pavement and soils are susceptible to damage from heavily-weighted vehicles. Road bans minimize the amount of repair and repaving needed to maintain a high road standard. They do not affect standard passenger vehicles.
