Seasonal Weight & Speed Restrictions Enforced Beginning Thursday, January 19 Click Here for details.

Alert

Beginning Thursday, January 19 at 6 a.m., Seasonal Weight and Speed

Restrictions will be enforced by the following agencies:

Kent County Road Commission (KCRC), Barry County Road Commission, Ionia County Road Commission, Muskegan County Road Commission, Ottawa County Road Commission, City of Kentwood, and the City of Walker

The intent of the restrictions is to protect the integrity of the road when frost is coming out of the ground. Normal legal loads must be reduced by
approximately 35% and truck vehicle speeds reduced to 35 mph.

The enforcement of restrictions is based on this week’s forecast of rising temperatures and rainfall along with tests indicating frost depth of up to 36 inches. The enforcement of restrictions will help protect the integrity of our non all-season roads as the frost comes out of the ground.

Imposed restrictions could be suspended as conditions warrant.

Those with truck-related questions may contact the Michigan Center for Truck Safety at 1-800-MTA- 4MTA (1-800-682-4682).
