MnDOT issues additional weight restrictions on Hwy 9 between Doran and Hwy 55

ETROIT LAKES, Minn. –Effective immediately, the Minnesota Department of Transportation has issued a 7-ton weight restriction on Highway 9, from Highway 75 near Doran to Highway 55. Pavement conditions along this roadway can no longer sustain the existing 10-ton limit. Oversized/overweight vehicles are advised to use Highway 55 and Highway 75 as alternate routes.

The weight restriction will remain in place until further notice.

As a reminder, spring load restrictions are already in effect across the state. Seasonal load limit zones and restricted routes can be found on the MnDOT load limits map. Start and end dates and other load limit information are shown at mndot.gov/loadlimits.

Ending dates for spring load restrictions are variable and based on how weather is affecting roadway strength.
