 PROPOSED SPRING LOAD RESTRICTIONS FOR 2020 

PIERRE, S.D. - Spring Load Restrictions in South Dakota can be placed on state highways between Feb. 15 – April 30, 2020. A map of proposed spring load restrictions is posted at: https://dot.sd.gov/travelers/of-interest/spring-load-restrictions and on the SDDOT’s 5-1-1 website https://www.safetravelusa.com/sd/

The effective date of the load restrictions is determined by weather and road conditions. When restrictions go into effect, a notice will be sent out and posted on the spring load restriction page of the Department of Transportation website (noted above). 

A spring load restriction report is usually issued in advance of any major load restriction change.  This report is issued for guidance only and does not take precedence over load restriction signs in place. For further information or a copy of a Spring Load Restriction Map, please contact the DOT at 605-773-3571.
