Seasonal Weight restrictions April 11, 2012

Effective Wednesday April 11, 2012 at 8:00 A.M.

Municipality of Anchorage will be subject to the following load restrictions:

Paved Streets - 75%

Gravel, RAP, and Chip Sealed Streets - 50%

Weight restrictions for legal axle loads apply to all vehicles over 10,000 GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight).

These restrictions are normally imposed this time of year and could possibly be enforced through May

purpose of these restrictions are to reduce roadway damage during spring breakup. This damage can be

caused by vehicles exceeding certain weight limitations.

weight restrictions, and for streets requiring increased restrictions.
