Seasonal WR Effective 04.22.2013

Effective Monday April 22, 2013 at 8:00 A.M., with limited exception, all streets owned / maintained by the
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
2013. The duration of the restrictions is dependent upon the weather and subsurface temperatures. The
purpose of these restrictions are to reduce roadway damage during spring breakup. This damage can be
caused by vehicles exceeding certain weight limitations.
