Spokane County Traffic Engineers began placing weight restriction signs on affected roads throughout Spokane County on Monday. The restrictions will limit the size and weight of vehicles that are allowed to travel on specific roads throughout the county.
Sheriff’s deputies will allow a two-day pubic education period before enforcing the restrictions on Feb. 15. The fine for violating the posted weight restriction is $411.
The Spokane County Engineers web site details the restrictions countywide.
The purpose of the restriction is to reduce the damage caused to the asphalt on the roadway as springtime approaches. These restrictions are put in place to protect the infrastructure of the roadways throughout the county.
