The following agencies have already suspended seasonal restrictions:

  • Road Commission of Kalamazoo County

The above-mentioned agencies enacted seasonal weight and speed restrictions on January 31 to protect the integrity of the road as frost was coming out of the ground.

Restrictions are lifted, or suspended, based on ongoing monitoring of conditions, frost depth measurements, and the upcoming forecast that, collectively, suggest non-all-season roads can once again support commercial traffic with heavier loads.
