WILLMAR — The spring load restrictions will end Monday in the central frost zone, which includes communities north of a line from Willmar, Litchfield and Benson.
The full-summer overweight permits will also start Monday in the south frost zone, which includes Willmar, Litchfield and Benson and communities south all the way to the Iowa border.
According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, middle-range overweight permits become available within each frost zone when spring load restrictions are lifted.
Full-summer overweight permits become available two to three weeks after spring load restrictions are lifted.
The full-summer overweight permits are already available in the metro and southeast frost zones.
The start and end dates for spring load restrictions are variable and based on how weather is affecting roadway strength. All changes are made with a minimum three-day notice, according to MnDOT.
