Seasonal weight limits to be in effect on Logan County highways          Send a link to a friend

[JAN. 18, 2007]  Roadway soils undergo freezing and thawing conditions this time of year. Heavy loads during these cycles can cause the roadways to rapidly deteriorate. The public's cooperation with seasonal weight limits will help to keep our roads in good condition and will reduce the need for expensive repairs.

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 have the weight limit signs posted. Any vehicles in excess of the weight limits need to have a permit issued by the Logan County Highway Department.

These permits are available at the department office, 529 S. McLean St., Lincoln, IL 62656; by calling 217-732-3059; or by visiting There is no charge for the permits. Permits will be valid only on certain days and will need to be verified by the Logan County Highway Department. The seasonal weight limits will be in effect until April 18.

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