Roads Closed to Heavy Loads
Ended on Friday, April 14, 2017

The annual posting of roads that started on February 27, 2017 ended for all roads on April 14th. Certain town roads are posted annually to protect the roads from heavy truck traffic during early spring conditions when the road bed first begins to thaw and the base remains saturated with water and unable to support the wheel loads. Posting is required to prevent significant damage to the road pavement.
