Beginning on Friday, March 9, 2012, the Village of Menomonee Falls will be placing load limit signs along Village roadways restricting heavy vehicle traffic in excess of 6 tons.
The Village places weight restrictions on Village roadways in the spring of the year to limit damage to the pavement that can occur when frost and moisture are leaving the roadway sub-grade.
During the period of posted load limit restrictions, all non-essential vehicles in excess of 6 tons will be prohibited from traveling on posted roadways. These vehicles include construction material delivery trucks, concrete trucks, landscaping trucks, dumpster transport trucks, etc. These weight limit restrictions will be enforced by the Police Department beginning on Monday, March 12, 2012. Posted load limit restrictions will be removed at such time as the Village determines that the roadways have thawed and dried sufficiently to support these heavy vehicle loads (approximately 30 days).
Municipal vehicles (DPW, Police and Fire), utility company vehicles, fuel delivery vehicles, garbage and recycling vehicles and parcel/appliance delivery vehicles are exempt from these restrictions.
Subdivisions that will NOT be posted:Carter's CrossingSpencer's Pass
If you have any questions regarding these restrictions, please contact the Department of Public Works at (262) 532-4700.
