Seasonal weight and speed restrictions are enforced to protect the integrity of the road when frost is coming out of the ground. These restrictions are lifted when agencies determine that non-all-season roads can once again support commercial traffic with heavier loads.

Those with truck-related questions may contact the Michigan Center for Truck Safety at 1-800-MTA- 4MTA (1-800-682-4682).
