Seasonal Weight Restrictions
St. Joseph County is experiencing numerous freeze-thaw events this season. These conditions tend to damage roadways susceptible to thaw weakening. The seasonal weight limits restrict certain vehicle loads during the spring months, for when road structures are thawing from above and trapped water is unable to escape the soil structure, thereby weakening the pavement and resulting in excessive road deterioration.
