[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
www.co.logan.il.us/highwaydept, 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
Hauling on township roads in Logan County during this time period
will need to be coordinated with the respective township road

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