Axle weight limits are restricted on certain streets within the City of Forest Lake to protect these streets from damage when road and weather conditions warrant in accordance with State & City regulations.
All City streets will be posted and limited to FIVE TON AXLE per axle weight limit. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead for moving or construction projects during the spring thaw season since weight restrictions will be enforced & large trucks will not be allowed on restricted streets.
Weight restrictions take effect during the spring thaw season, which is usually March 1st to May 15th, dependent upon the weather. Forest Lake follows the Seasonal Load Limits established by the State of Minnesota. Check the MN DOT website for dates.
