(KCCR) — Warmer spring weather is forcing the South Dakota Department of Transportation to impose load limit restrictions on some central South Dakota highways. Starting at noon Central Time Monday the following highways will have weight limit restrictions going into effect. State Highway 63 will have a six ton per axle limit from US Highway 212 to South Dakota Highway 20, from the Cheyenne River to U-S-212 and from SD-34 to the Cheyenne River. South Dakota Highway 1806 will have a seven ton per axle limit from Highway 273 in Lyman County to U-S-83 just south of Fort Pierre and from the Oahe Dam north to Mission Ridge. On the east side of the Missouri River, State Highway 1804 will have a seven ton per axle weight limit in place from the Hughes/Sully County line to U-S-212. The changes are for guidance only and does not take precedence over load restriction signs already in place. More information on load restrictions on state highways can be found on the Safe Travel USA website or online at the Department of Transportation website.
