MITA has just learned that the MDOT regions have begun monitoring frost depth to determine when spring weight restrictions will be imposed.
Therefore, if you have equipment or materials you need to move in preparation for the upcoming construction season, you may want to start planning those moves soon, as at some point in time your efforts will be impacted by spring weight restrictions.
Remember that axle limitations on seasonal routes are reduced to less than legal loads, and permits to move overweight loads and loads over 14-feet wide are suspended during spring weight restriction periods.
MITA will you keep you informed of all imposed weight restrictions statewide as we are notified about them.
