New weight limits enacted for two Zeeland Twp. bridges

OCRC Summer Hours: M-Th 7 AM-4:30 PM, Friday 7-11 AM

The Ottawa County Road Commission has approved posting bridge weight limits for two bridges in Zeeland Township, Ottawa County.

A 19 TON weight limit has been established on Byron Road over the Black River east of I-196, and a 10 TON weight limit has been established on 96th Avenue over the Black River south of Adams Street.

Signs giving notice of the new weight limits should be installed next week, weather permitting.  The bridges shall remain open to the traveling public, with the 96th Avenue being reopened once repairs are completed — likely the week ending Jan. 11, 2018, due to additional beam repair work that was identified and is being fixed.

Any vehicles exceeding the respective weight limits on the two bridges must seek alternate routes.
