Weight limits added to more roads

| March 9, 2022 1:00 AM

SANDPOINT — There are few areas in the county were weight limits aren't in effect.

In fact, the only area without weight restrictions is in the Priest Lake area, according to Bonner County Road & Bridge officials. 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) — All roads south of Dickensheet Road are posted with weight limits.
  • 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.

Information: Bonner County Road & Bridge, 208-255-5681, ext. 1, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; after hours, 208-255-5681, ext. 8 for weight limits
