To protect Marinette County highways, the Marinette County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin State Patrol may enforce the spring weight restrictions on all county trunk highways. Marinette County Highway Commissioner Eric Burmeister says, “the public invests tax dollars to create and maintain roads.”
Burmeister says, “all county highways or lettered roads shall have restrictions.”
Highway maintenance vehicles, school buses, emergency vehicles, milk/seed potato/livestock haulers, perishable food haulers, and solid waste haulers collecting residential or commercial waste will be exempt from the road restrictions. This does not include town roads. Towns will need to be contacted directly for the status of their weight restrictions.
