McLeod County Spring Load Restrictions

Spring Load Restrictions will go into effect on all McLeod County Highways on Friday, February 17, 2017 and will remain in effect until further notice.

These restrictions protect the investments we have made in our highways and help hold off costly pavement repair and unnecessary reconstruction.

The restrictions limit the weight on any single axle to five (5) tons on unpaved roads and ten (10) tons on paved roads. Some paved roads will be reduced further and posted accordingly with signs indicating maximum allowable axle loads.

Any questions regarding specific route postings should be directed to the McLeod County Highway Department at (320) 484-4321.
