Spring Weight Limits on Town Roads

Casey Beyersdorf, Highway Commissioner for Waupaca County Highway Department has announced that Spring weight limit restrictions will begin Wednesday, March 8th 2023 at 12:01 a.m. When the highways become firm, the Spring weight limit restrictions will be lifted.

Permit forms, maps and additional information can be found at the Waupaca County website highway page in the left tool bar. The seasonal weight restriction will be six ton load for a single axle vehicle and ten ton load for a tandem axle vehicle.

These Spring weight limitations will be enforced pursuant to Section 349.16 of the Wisconsin Statutes.

We request all parties involved to abide by these limits in order to protect and preserve the structural capacities of the County Trunk Highway System. If you have questions about the spring weight limit restrictions, please see our website or contact the Highway Department at 715-258-7152.
