DOT Ends Frozen Road Law in Southern Zones
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/26/2018
The Wisconsin Department of Transportation has ended the frozen road declaration in southern Wisconsin over the past weekend, and implemented Spring Thaw and Class II road restrictions for Zones 4 and 5. The impacted area includes roads south of a line
from Dubuque to Manitowoc along and including U.S. Highway 151.
Class II roads include about 1,400 miles of state highways susceptible to damage from heavy trucks during the spring thaw period as frost leaves the ground.
A Declaration of Spring Thaw also means suspension of most divisible load overweight permits including permit numbers beginning with any of the following two-letter codes: AC, AG, FF, MI, PB and RF.
County highways, town roads, and city and village streets may also be posted or limited to legal load limits or less.
Announcements regarding other zones will be made as conditions warrant.
