Public Notice from the Cook County Highway Department - May 17, 2018

May 17, 2018 – Seasonal Load Restrictions on Cook County’s paved roads end today, Thursday, May 17, 2018. Legal weight trucks can now use these roads unless otherwise posted. 

The condition of gravel roads will continue to be inspected, and the Highway Department expects restrictions on many gravel roads to remain in effect until otherwise notified; however, restrictions on these gravel roads are now lifted: 

  • CSAH 1 to Sugarloaf Rd
  • CR 27
  • CR 56
  • CR 57
  • CR 60 to CR 58
  • CR 92

Weight restrictions on all roads will be removed as soon as conditions allow. Haulers are asked to be mindful of posted bridges, which have year-round varying load restrictions, on some Cook County Highways. Please contact the Highway Department with any questions.
