Delta County road restrictions to start

ESCANABA – It’s one of the signs that spring is on the way. Annual springtime weight and speed restrictions will go into effect on all Delta County roads not designated as all season routes at 8 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies from the Delta County Sheriff’s Department will be enforcing springtime weight restrictions.

The cooperation of area haulers during spring restrictions is greatly appreciated, officials from the Delta County Road Commission said.

A list of of the All Season Road Network in Delta County is available upon request at the road commission offices.

Road restrictions are put into place to help prevent damage to area roads during the spring thaw. The restrictions are lifted when the threat of road damage passes.
