Restrictions started today: go to the gov website and it will tell you the restrictions on each road.  
1&16 are the only roads without restictions.

Road conditions are on. Remember that municipalities can also apply their own road restrictions. Gravel roads have been a hot spot for bypassing restrictions. Now many are restricted the hardest.

Thank you! And I agree our gravel RM roads get pounded out every year.  
 
The municipality restrictions are only good if someone actually enforces them.

Agreed....

But DOT cannot be everywhere. Just like our understaffed Game and Fish Officers. Can't be everywhere to catch everyone. It is when they least expect it and they get you. If you see bad truckers by all means call them in too. It only costs everyone else millions in road repairs.

Started this morning and will be off no later than May 31st.  
 
Where are you coming from with your load? Keep in mind there's a pretty big list of things that get special exemptions, maybe what you are needing to move falls under one of them. It doesn't give you carte blanche to weigh whatever you want though.
