Annual Road Postings
Every spring the Public Works posts the roads so that heavy vehicles will not damage the roads while the frost is working its way out to the ground. The maximum registered weight of a vehicle allowed on posted roads is 23,000 pounds or less. The rule shall not apply to any road that is frozen. Frozen means the temperature is below 32 degrees and there is no standing water in the cracks. The road is considered frozen if adjacent gravel driveways, shoulders, lawn remain frozen. Once the roads are posted they remain as such until the postings are removed, generally no later than May 15th.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping us preserve our roads during the freeze thaw cycle.
