Heavier truck loads can be on highways, Frozen Road Law expands

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Don’t be surprised to see more-and-bigger trucks on Wisconsin’s major highways.

This week’s cold snap expanded the state’s Frozen Road Law, which allows heavier loads for carrying most forest products and winter road maintenance items.

The heavier loads are permitted on state highways throughout Wisconsin except the southeast region.

Trucks are allowed to carry up to 98-thousand pounds – up from the normal 80-thousand.

The heavier vehicles are not allowed on local roads unless those local governments approve.

More information is available at the state Department of Transportation’s Web site, accessible at Wisconsin-Dot-Gov.
