Seasonal Road Restrictions Lifted, All Roads Open on June 13

Jun 12, 2019 12:45PM ● By Editor

June 12, 2018 – The Cook County Highway Department will lift all seasonal road restrictions at 12:01 Thursday, June 13, and all gravel roads will 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 melting snow 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 about roads, maintenance or restrictions, contact the Highway Department at 218-387-3014.
