We know that it is still cold, with no real signs of winter letting up. However, given the extreme temperatures over the past few months, the frost depth is deeper than normal this winter. As a result, MDOT has warned MITA that the annual spring weight restrictions may be imposed for a longer period than normal.
Therefore, make sure to keep your eye on the long-range forecast, and, if you have equipment or materials you need to move in preparation for the upcoming construction season, you will want to plan accordingly because sooner or later your efforts will be impacted by the pending weight restrictions.
MITA will keep you informed of all imposed weight restrictions statewide as we are notified about them.
