At this time of year, due to freeze-thaw cycles and wet conditions, a weight limit may be necessary to help prevent severe deterioration of the roadways.  The posted county highways will be posted at a 10-ton weight limit, which includes both the vehicle and its load.  During periods of hard freeze or dry conditions, legal loads may  be permitted on a daily basis.  Please check this website on a regular basis, as changes in conditions may effect the status of all or some of the roads in the county highway system.

Starting March 20th the normal weight limits are in effect on all posted County Highways until further notice. 

Information as to the weight limit currently in effect can be obtained by listening to WNOI Radio semi-weekly during morning and noon news broadcasts or by visiting the Engineer/Highway under Offices Section of the Clay County website at

Your cooperation in observing the weight limits will help prevent deterioration of county highways.

For weight limits on township roads, please contact the respective Road Commissioners.
