Load Limit Weight Restrictions

Spring Load Limit Weight Restrictions begin on Friday, March 15, 2019 at 12:01AM

Weight restrictions are implemented each year from February to May in an effort to preserve and protect Oakdale’s road system during the thawing and refreezing associated with spring.

Streets are weakened during the spring thaw by water that becomes trapped in the gravel base below the pavement. The weight of vehicles traveling over these roads can cause the road to bend and possibly crack.

Limiting the amount of weight on the street during this time will minimize the wear and allow the base adequate time to stabilize.

The maximum duration for these spring weight restrictions will not exceed eight (8) weeks unless extraordinary conditions exist that require additional time or route specific signage is posted.
