County Road Restrictions Temporarily Lifted

Due to the recent drop in temperatures, combined with requests from area businesses that are struggling to survive the current economy, weight restrictions on county roads will be temporarily suspended until Friday, March 13, 2009.

This will provide local companies a small window of opportunity to transport their products on county roads without concern for the weight of their cargo. Warmer temperatures are expected to return soon and weight restrictions will again be enforced.

For more information on road weight limits and restrictions, contact the Spokane County Division of Engineering and Roads at (509) 477-3600.
