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.
