For the second straight week, the Davison County Commission will consider spring load limits for county highways.

At last week's commission meeting, Highway Superintendent Rusty Weinberg requested the county's spring load limits remain in effect until April 15 with the intention to reconsider at Tuesday's meeting.

The meeting will be held at 9 a.m. in the Davison County North Offices at 1420 N. Main St. in Mitchell.

According to the 2016 weight and per-axle limits in Davison County, a six-ton per axle limit is currently in effect on all county oil roads. Vehicles exceeding the weight limits are subject to a Class 2 misdemeanor.

Five stretches of road are excluded from the county's load limit restrictions, including 254th Street between 394th Avenue and 408th Avenue, 397th Avenue from Interstate 90 to Mount Vernon, 403rd Avenue from 255th Street to Interstate 90 and 403rd Avenue from 254th Street to the unincorporated town of Betts. The area from 247th Street from 405th Avenue to S.D. State Highway 37 is posted at 8 tons per axle.
