Weight limits are in full force in the county as warmer temperatures are making their way to the region.

That means no early morning hauling is allowed on any Bonner County maintained road posted with weight limits.

  • District 1 (south of the Long Bridge) — All roads are posted with weight limits.

  • District 2 (Priest River/Priest Lake) — The following roads are posted with weight limits: All roads south of the Pend Oreille River, all roads in Laclede south of U.S. 2, Smith Creek Road, E. Settlement Road, E. Thama Drive, Freeman Lake Road, Langille Canyon, Holly Glenn Road, Shannon Lane, Barrett Road and Stone Johnny Road. All roads not listed that are south of Dickensheet are scheduled to be posted by 8 a.m. Tuesday, March 8.

  • District 3 (Sandpoint/Clark Fork) — All roads are posted with weight limits.

As a reminder, a red flag or no flag on the sign indicates weight limits are in effect.

Per county ordinance, it is the responsibility of the hauler to contact the Bonner County Road & Bridge Department to determine whether or not these restrictions are in place. The restrictions will remain in effect until changed, at which time updates will be posted.
