Richard Johnson, Clerk by dh Spring weight takes effect Spring road weight restrictions on state highways will be in place at 12:01 a.m. today, Tuesday, March 2 in the south zone, with the exception of the metro area, according to officials at the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The notice has been reduced from == a ,Old Mill0000iders method being implemented by Mn/DOT to minimize damage to the state's roadways. The new method also includes automatically lifting the restrictions eight weeks after the start date, which is April 27. The south zone extends from the Iowa state line north to and including State Highway 12 from the South Dakota state line to Interstate 35. Highways in the metro area are not included in the spring weight restrictions at this time. The intent of this new method is to restrict weights at the beginning of the thaw cycle when they are needed most. Spring is a critical period for roads because the soils and aggregate materials are weak while the frost leaves the ground. Through research conducted at the Tuesday, March 2, 1999 at 12:01 a.m. Residents of Big Stone County should take note that ALL COUNTY AND TOWNSHIP ROADS, unless posted otherwise now carry a load limit restriction of 5 TONS per axle. Axle weight load limitations are provided for by Minnesota Statutes Section 169.87. Signs will be erected indicating the weight restriction. Road restrictions will remain in force for the next eight weeks. I INDEPENDENT WANT ADS BRING QUICK Mn/ROAD pavement research facility and validated statewide, Mn/DOT was able to predict when weakening will occur using air temperatures currently recorded and forecasted for most of Minnesota. The new procedure uses a thawing index and a three-day forecast. Mn/DOT's analysis indicates that over the past decade the spring restrictions have been placed a week or so later than they should have been. The potential savings resulting from the new system are substantial because statewide about 38,000 miles of paved roads do not meet the 10-ton spring load design standard.
