SANDPOINT — With an ongoing warming trend and wet weather expected, one of the county's road districts may post weight restriction by the end of the week, Bonner County Road & Bridge officials said.

All roads in District 1 — which encompasses the area south of the Long Bridge — are expected to be marked with green flags by Tuesday.

No roads in District 2, which covers the Priest River and Priest Lake areas, or in District 3, which covers the Sandpoint and Clark Fork areas, will be marked at this time.

Per BCRC Ordinance #422, it shall be the responsibility of the hauler to contact the Road & Bridge Department to determine whether or not these restrictions are in place. These restrictions will remain in effect until changed, at which time updates will be posted.
