  • Chippewa County seasonal load restrictions will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, March 15.
    The restrictions will be effective countywide. Sea­s­onal road restrictions protect roads during the spring thaw, when road strength is at its lowest point of the year.
    By state law, all non-posted county paved roads are open to a normal 10-ton per axle load limit. Also by state law, all non-posted county gravel roads and township roads are restricted to five-ton per axle load limitation.
    For further information, including a map showing the axle load restriction on county roads, go to the Chippewa County web site at www.co.chippewa.mn.us, click on DEPARTMENTS; then HIGHWAY DEPARTMENT; then SPRING LOAD RESTRICTION; and then select the map.
