Spring Load Restrictions - Annual Overweight Permit

Spring Load Restrictions

Spring Load Restrictions for 2018 will be lifted at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, April 30, 2018.

The City of Farmington places spring weight restrictions on City streets in conjunction with Dakota County and the State of Minnesota. Restrictions are put in place in an effort to protect streets which are vulnerable during the spring season.  As frost leaves the ground during the spring thaw, high moisture in the gravel limits the load carrying capacity of the pavement.  Spring Load Restrictions are imposed to prolong the service life of the street.  During spring load restrictions, all city streets have a 5 ton axle weight limit unless otherwise posted.
