The City of West Fargo has announced that spring road restrictions for commercial motor vehicles will be put in place Thursday, March 11, 2021. Cass County and the North Dakota Department of Transportation are also implementing restrictions Thursday. The West Fargo Municipal Code calls for reduced allowable weights on streets under City of West Fargo jurisdiction that may become seriously damaged or destroyed by deterioration, rain, snow or other climate conditions. These restrictions are put in place every spring, when streets break up due to frost leaving the ground and heavy loads could cause serious damage to the roads.
The restricted roadways classifications, restricted gross axle weights, and restricted gross vehicle weight limits on city streets are as follows:
Road Restriction Maximum Gross and Axle Weights
Class 1 Load Restriction
Class 2 Load Restriction
Class 3 Load Restriction
Class 4 Load Restriction
Cars and Unloaded Trucks Only
A copy of the city’s road class map can be found on the City of West Fargo’s overdimensional website. The city’s truck route map is also found on the overdimensional website.
Spring restrictions typically are in place from March until May, but the actual dates are weather dependent. Vehicles found in excess of the weight limitations imposed are charged a fee based on their amount overweight.
