Spring Road Restrictions in Effect March 8

Seasonal Road Weight Restrictions in Effect Starting Monday March 8, 2021

Bayfield County is posting the county roads at 9AM Monday the 8th.  Town Roads will follow suit.  Hwy 13 won’t have weight restrictions, but the county and town roads will.

There are exemptions like school buses, fuel delivery, sanitary, agricultural, etc.

Truck Drivers are trained to be aware of these restrictions.

What you need to be aware of:  Take note that you will be unable to take delivery of concrete, large loads – 18 wheeler – of firewood or other large and heavy loads including building materials.

If delivery of such materials is urgent – and does not involve a county road – it may be possible on a case by case basis depending on the condition of the involved road.

Please contact Matt Hipsher at 715-209-7322  before a delivery is scheduled.
