2021 SPRING LOAD LIMITS
LINCOLN COUNTY HIGHWAYS
Please be advised that the Lincoln County Highway Department will be posting the following load limits on designated County roads in accordance with SDCL 32-14-6.
The limits on Lincoln County Highways shall be set at seven (7) Tons per axle, 40 Tons Max, on designated asphalt surfaced highways and six (6) tons per axle on gravel roads during the spring thaw period WHEN load limit signs are in place. This axle weight limit is applicable to trailers and wagons as well as motorized vehicles.
Serious and expensive damage can occur to our highway system if load limits are exceeded. Load limits will be removed at the earliest possible date, but may stay on through April 30, depending upon weather and road conditions.
Please be advised that the South Dakota Motor Carrier Services have been requested to enforce weight limitations on all Lincoln County Highways and that no overweight permits will be issued.
Your cooperation during this critical period will be greatly appreciated.
Lincoln County Highway Department.
