To protect the city’s infrastructure investments, it is necessary to regulate the weight of vehicles traveling over the roads. This is especially true during the freeze/thaw cycles of early spring. When such conditions are identified by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) and/or the city engineer, seasonal restrictions are imposed until the danger of frost break-up is past. The seasonal restrictions can be found on the MnDOT website at: http://dotapp7.dot.state.mn.us/research/seasonal_load_limits/sllindex.asp
To facilitate the necessary movement of commercial vehicles, it may be necessary to permit overweight vehicles over certain city roads. Permits will only be issued during emergency situations, and are at the sole discretion of the City Engineer. Please see the seasonal weight restriction handout for more information.
Any damage caused to City of Plymouth streets, including those under permit, are subject to repair costs by the vehicle owner if such damage is from that activity. The Plymouth Police Department has the authority to stop any vehicle that may be overweight and require proof of permit.
