Weight restrictions for commercial truck traffic have been imposed and enforced on state trunklines from the southern Michigan border north and including the entire stretch of U.S. 10 at Ludington, in Mason County, and east to and including State Route 25 and the thumb area, in Huron County.

There are no restrictions for legal axle weight loads on roads designated as “all-season trunklines.” All extended permits will be valid for oversized loads in the weight-restricted area on the restricted routes. Single trip permits will not be issued for any overweight loads or loads exceeding 14 feet in width on the restricted routes.

For weight restriction information and updates, call 800-787-8960 or go to www.michigan.gov/mdot under “Favorite Links,” and then click on “Truckers Services.” All-season routes are designated in green and gold on the MDOT Truck Operators Map, which is available online by clicking here.

Trucking companies located in New Jersey and Canada can obtain information by calling 517-373-6256.
