Beginning on Wednesday, February 28 the Village of Menomonee Falls will be placing temporary load limit signs along Village roadways restricting heavy vehicle traffic in excess of 6 tons. These temporary weight limit restrictions will be enforced by the Police Department beginning on Monday, March 5.
The Village places weight restrictions on Village roadways in the spring of the year to limit damage to the pavement that can occur when frost and moisture are leaving the roadway sub-grade.
During the period of posted load limit restrictions, all non-essential vehicles in excess of 6 tons will be prohibited from traveling on posted roadways. These vehicles include construction material delivery trucks, concrete trucks, landscaping trucks, dumpster transport trucks, etc. Temporary load limit restrictions will be removed at such time as the Village determines that the roadways have thawed and dried sufficiently to support these heavy vehicle loads (approximately 30 days). Please refer to the Information section below for current information related to these temporary load limit postings.
The Village has given an exemption to:
- Developers of Tamarind Subdivision on the northeast corner of Lisbon Road and Lannon Road. Please note the load limits are still in effect on One Mile Road.
- Municipal Vehicles (DPW, Police and Fire), Utility Company Vehicles, Fuel Delivery Vehicles, Garbage and Recycling Vehicles, Residential Moving Services and Parcel/Appliance Delivery Vehicles.
