Spring Load Restrictions - 2022

Spring Load Restrictions 2022 ImageIn another sign of the changing seasons, spring load restrictions are going into effect in the City of Delano on March 18, 2022. These restrictions can remain in effect for up to eight weeks, after which the ground is dry enough for roads to carry normal truck loads.

When the ground freezes, a roadway can bear more weight. This means trucks can haul heavier loads than in Spring, when the ground under the road thaws and can leave the road more susceptible to damage from heavy axle weights.
