Michigan truck weight restrictions kick in

LANSING, Mich.– Effective today, weight restrictions for commercial truck traffic will be imposed and enforced on Michigan state trunklines from the southern Michigan border north to and including the Mackinac Bridge.

According to the state’s Department of Transportation, there are no restrictions for legal axle weight loads on roads designated as “all-season trunklines.” All extended permits will be valid for oversized loads in the weight-restricted area on the restricted routes. Single trip permits will not be issued for any overweight loads or loads exceeding 14 feet in width on the restricted routes.

Trucking companies located in Canada and New Jersey can obtain information by calling 517-373-6256.
