Seasonal weight and speed restrictions due to warmer weather


The Kent County Road Commission (KCRC), Barry County Road Commission, Ionia County Road Commission, City of Kentwood, and the City of Walker are enacting seasonal weight limit and speed restrictions due to the warmer weather we’ve experienced.

The intent of the restrictions is to protect the integrity of the road when frost is coming out of the ground. Normal legal loads must be reduced by approximately 35 percent and truck vehicle speeds reduced to 35 mph.

“We will be enforcing the restrictions based on this week’s forecast of rising temperatures and rainfall along with tests indicating frost depth of up to 36 inches. The enforcement of restrictions will help us protect the integrity of our non all-season roads as the frost comes out of the ground,” said Jerry Byrne, KCRC’s Deputy Director of Operations for KCRC.

Byrne said that the imposed restrictions could be suspended as conditions warrant.

Those with truck-related questions may contact the Michigan Center for Truck Safety at 1-800-MTA- 4MTA (1-800-682-4682).
