NOTICE
Under the authority of SDCL 32-22-24, a Highway Maintaining Authority may restrict loads on their highways. The purpose of the load restrictions is to protect the highways from break-up during the spring thaw. Seasonal climatic changes can be detrimental to our highways. The Union County Board of Commissioners desires to protect existing Union County Highways, ultimately saving tax dollars.
Please be advised that the annual spring load limits may be applied at any time and may stay on through April 30. The actual date the limits are put on and taken off is determined by weather and roadway conditions. The limits will be enforced upon the placing of the load limit signs.
The 7-ton axle weight limit is applicable to wagons as well as motorized vehicles.
Overweight and over width permits will not be issued while spring restrictions are in effect.
Thank you for your cooperation.
