Spring road weight restrictions start today
NEW ULM — Spring weight road restrictions on Brown County roads will go into effect on the morning of
Friday, March 15, 2019 at 12:01 AM to coincide with weight restrictions imposed by Mn/DOT
in the South Zone. All County roadways are restricted to five, seven, nine or ten tons per axle as
indicated by posted signs. For gravel roads, the weight restriction is five tons per axle. Any
Brown County paved road not marked by signs is restricted to 10 tons. These limits are imposed
to minimize road damage during the spring thaw.
