The Town suggests that residents and business owners:

  • Contact delivery drivers or contractors and inform them of the weight restrictions during the spring thawing of Town roads
  • Divide heavier loads in two smaller loads
  • Modify routes during the spring thaw
  • Conduct deliveries at night or in the early morning when roads may be stronger due to overnight freezing
  • Drive down the middle of the road where safe to do so

 

If you have any questions, we encourage people to call before they haul. Please call the Town Hall at 608-845-7187 if you need assistance with these regulations. 

The State of Wisconsin also has seasonal road weight limits. For more information regarding state roads go to: http://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/dmv/com-drv-vehs/mtr-car-trkr/ssnl-wt-rsrctns/default.aspx
