Seasonal weight limits on Logan County highways begin Jan. 20

Send a link to a friend

[January 09, 2013]  During the winter months, soils will freeze and thaw repeatedly. This can cause problems for local roadways that are not designed to support heavy traffic. Heavy loads during these freeze-thaw cycles can cause significant damage.

Beginning Jan. 20, the seasonal weight limits will be in effect on all Logan County highways. These roads are marked with five-sided blue signs and are posted with weight limit signs. Any vehicle in excess of the weight limits needs to have a permit issued by the Logan County Highway Department.

Permits are available by visiting, by calling the highway department office at 217-732-3059 or by visiting the office at 529 S. McLean St. in Lincoln. There is no charge for the permits. Permits will be valid only on certain days when conditions are suitable.

Hauling on township roads in Logan County during this time period will need to be coordinated with the respective township road commissioner.

Again this year, the highway department is asking for cooperation to help keep our roads in good condition.
