RE:      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 on Thursday, March 21st, 2019, as soon as signs are erected, on all Chippewa County Trunk Highways east of STH 27 and all Chippewa County Trunk Highways north of STH 64.  Temporary weight limits are typically in effect for 5-6 weeks depending on weather and roadway conditions, however the unusually-deep frost beneath the roadways this year may result in additional time.

County Trunk Highways in these areas that will not be posted are:

  • CTH SS          Bloomer to New Auburn
  • CTH X
  • CTH D            Boyd to CTH X
  • All Chippewa County Highways located within the limits of incorporated cities & villages. 

 In addition to the above areas, the following County Trunk Highways will also be posted:

  • CTH J           STH 29 to CTH K
  • CTH OO       CTH P to CTH K
  • CTH TT        CTH K to STH 27

  • CTH UN        Eau Claire County Line to CTH P
  • CTH K           CTH S to 235th Street
  • CTH R           STH 64 to STH 178
  • CTH XX         Eau Claire County Line CTH O
  • CTH MM        CTH X to Clark County Line
  • CTH ZZ          STH 64 to STH 178

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.
