Load limit dates are based on how weather is affecting roadway strength.  These dates are established by monitoring roadway strength as weather conditions change.  Therefore, these dates are variable. The end of Winter Load Increases and start of Spring Load Restrictions are separate events which may not occur on the same date.
 
As soon as a date is set, MnDOT will report this date on its 24-hour automated message center at 1-800-723-6543 for the USA and Canada, and locally at 651-366-5400 for the Minneapolis/St Paul area. This information is also published on the MnDOT Seasonal Load Limits website: www.mndot.gov/loadlimits 
All changes are made with a minimum three calendar-day notice.
