Public notice from Cook County - June 20, 2018
The Cook County Highway Department has lifted all seasonal road restrictions, and all gravel roads are open to legal haulers.
Cook County thanks everyone for their patience while conditions were monitored throughout the spring season. Seasonal load restrictions are put into place to protect roads from damage or failure during the spring thaw, when the snow melt and rain can saturate road base material. Damage done to roads is usually deeper than just on the surface and can end up costing thousands of dollars to repair.
For any questions on roads, maintenance or restrictions, contact the Highway Department any time at 218-387-3014.
