GOGEBIC COUNTY – Effective at 7:00 a.m. central time on Monday, March 18, 2019 the Gogebic County Road Commission Spring Weight Restrictions will be in effect. Due to the minimal surface support and frost heave susceptibility on the Local Road system (including gravel roads), the 5 ton limit shall be enforced. County Primary Road System – shall follow the Michigan Frost Laws that require a 35% reduction in axle loading. This allows major principal routes through the County/Townships to remain at the normal weight restricted amount while reducing the loading on local roads. The Gogebic County Road Commission is monitoring the frost action on our roads, and when conditions warrant removal of the 5 ton restrictions, notice shall be provided to revert back to the 35% reduction for the remainder of the weight restricted season. If you have any questions please call our office at (906) 667-0233.
