TEMPORARY WEIGHT LIMIT BAN
CHIPPEWA COUNTY HIGHWAYS
In accordance with sec. 349.16, Wisconsin Statutes, a temporary gross weight limit of six tons on any one axle and ten tons on any tandem axle less than eight feet apart will be in effect beginning 7:00 am on Monday, February 20th, 2017, on all Chippewa County Trunk Highways east of STH 27 and all Chippewa County Trunk Highways north of STH 64. Temporary weight limits are usually in effect for 5-6 weeks, depending on weather and roadway conditions.
Highways in these areas that will not be posted include: CTH ‘SS’ from Bloomer to New Auburn, CTH ‘X’, CTH ‘D’ from Boyd to CTH ‘X’ and all Chippewa County Highways located within the limits of incorporated cities and villages.
In addition to the above areas, the following highways will also be posted:
CTH OO CTH P to CTH K
CTH TT CTH K to STH 27
CTH P Eau Claire County Line to CTH OO
CTH UN Eau Claire County Line to CTH P
CTH K CTH S to STH 27
CTH R STH 64 to STH 178
CTH XX Eau Claire County Line CTH X
CTH MM CTH X to Clark County Line
CTH ZZ STH 64 to STH 178
CTH M Dunn County Line to CTH X
CTH N Dunn County Line to CTH T
CTH A Dunn County Line to CTH DD South
CTH DD STH 40 to CTH M
CTH C STH 40 to CTH Q
This is a critical period of time for the county highways and we request support and cooperation for this temporary load limit. Chippewa County will be enforcing the posted seasonal weight limits and penalties may be imposed under Sec. 348.21, Wis. Statutes for violations. If it appears necessary to place restrictions on any other Chippewa County Trunk Highways during this time, signs will be installed as required.
