Press Release: Weight limits posted for 32nd Ave. bridge, Chester Twp.

Seasonal weight restrictions in effect as of 6 a.m. Jan. 31

The Ottawa County Road Commission has approved posting a weight limit (One Unit Vehicle–41 Tons, Two Unit Vehicle–41 Tons, Three Unit Vehicle–55 Tons) on the 32nd Avenue bridge crossing the north branch of Crockery Creek between Truman Street and Sherman Street in Chester Township.

The posting is being implemented because of a recent discovery of some structural deterioration.
