Seasonal Road Restrictions

Spring Road Restrictions

Spring Road restrictions start on Monday, February 26, 2024 at 12:01 am. 

The ending dates for Spring road restrictions are based on how weather is affecting roadway strength. These dates are established by monitoring roadway strength as weather conditions change. Therefore, the ending dates for Spring road restrictions are variable. The Township follows the dates for seasonal road restrictions determined by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT). As soon as a date is set, MnDOT will report this date on its 24-hour automated message center at 651-366-5400 or toll free at 800-723-6543. The Township will also post updates when they come available.
