EAST LANSING, Mich. – The City of East Lansing announced today that spring truck weight limits on City roads will take effect at 6 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 19. The temporary weight restrictions help to reduce road damage caused by winter thaw and heavy vehicles.

In general, the maximum allowed weight on city roads is reduced by 25 percent on Class A roads and 35 percent on Class B roads while the frost comes out of the roadbed.

Single axle weights of 18,000 pounds are reduced to 13,500 pounds on Class A roads and to 11,700 pounds on Class B roads. Tandem-axles carrying a standard axle weight of 16,000 pounds are restricted to 12,000 pounds on Class A roads and from 13,000 pounds to 8,450 pounds on Class B roads.
