February 28, 2022 - 2022 SEASONAL ROAD WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS
Effective at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 11, 2022.


2022 SEASONAL ROAD WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS
Pursuant to the Marinette County Code of Ordinance Chapter 22.04 and Wisconsin State Statues 349.16, Marinette
County Highway seasonal weight restrictions will become effective at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 11, 2022.

In an effort to protect Marinette County highways, the Marinette County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin State
Patrol may enforce the spring weight restrictions on all county trunk highways. Spring weight limit restrictions are a
necessity for the economic longevity and immediate structural stability of highways that, without restrictions, will
seriously deteriorate when the underlying ground is weak and mushy from melting frost.

All county highway (lettered roads) restrictions shall be posted for 6 tons maximum per single axle and 10 ton
maximum per tandem axle group. The maximum gross vehicle weight is 28 tons. All non-divisible overweight
permits will be suspended at this time. Permits to exceed these limits may be granted on a limited basis.

Highway maintenance vehicles, school buses, emergency vehicles, milk/seed potato/livestock haulers, perishable
food haulers, solid waste haulers collecting residential or commercial waste, leachate hauling will be EXEMPT from
the road restrictions.

This notice does not include town roads. Towns will need to be contacted directly for the status of their weight
restrictions.
