Seasonal weight restrictions are in effect on many Spokane County roads and will continue until further notice.
Roadway surfaces, and the structures beneath the surface, have become weakened during this winter's cycle of freezing temperatures, followed by warmer temperatures and precipitation. As a result, roads are vulnerable to severe damage and the implementation of weight restrictions reduces the need for increased road maintenance and vehicle repairs later this year. The County said these changes can differ each year. This means that different roads may, or may not, be restricted and the time frame for implementing the restrictions.
