Spring Load Restrictions

Itasca County follows MnDot's Spring Road Restrictions.
  • North Central Zone: Spring Load Restrictions Start March 6, 2017 at 12:01 a.m.
  • North Zone: Spring Load Restrictions Start March 22, 2017 at 12:01 a.m.
Spring Load Restriction starting dates are set on very short notice based on existing weather conditions and the 3-day weather forecast. It is the responsibility of the truck operator to know if Seasonal Load Limits are in effect. This information can be obtained at any time by calling MnDot's Seasonal Load Limits automated message center at 651-366-5400 (toll free 800-723-6543) or by checking the MnDot website.


The boundary between the North Zone and the North Central Zone runs through Itasca County along U.S. Highway Number 2 meaning roads in Itasca County don't necessarily all have the same seasonal load limit start and end dates. Please study this situation to determine how it affects you.

5-Ton Axle Limit

By law, all County and Town roads are reduced to 5-Ton Axle Limit unless posted otherwise or changed by local ordinance.
