Seasonal weight limits on Logan
County Highways to go into effect January 20th
Send a link to a friend
[January 12, 2017]
- During the winter months, soils will freeze and thaw repeatedly.
These conditions pose a problem for our local roads which were not
designed to support heavy traffic. Heavy trucks can cause extensive
damage during these freeze/thaw cycles.
Beginning January 20, the seasonal weight limits will be in
effect on all Logan County Highways. These roads are marked with
5-sided blue signs and are posted with weight limit signs.
Any vehicle that is in excess of the weight limits needs to have a
permit issued by the Logan County Highway Department. Permits will
only be valid on days when road conditions are suitable for hauling,
as determined by the highway department.
Permits are available by visiting our website at
www.logancountyil.gov/highway, by calling (217) 732-3059, or by
visiting the Highway Department at 529 S. McLean Street in Lincoln.
Hauling on township roads should be coordinated with the respective
Township Road Commissioner.
By preventing damage to our roads, we can make better use of
taxpayer dollars. So, again this year, we are asking for cooperation
to help keep our roads in good condition.
