Weight restrictions unchanged in county

| March 11, 2022 1:00 AM

SANDPOINT — As the county heads into the weekend, there are no changes to weight limits on county roads, according to Bonner County Road & Bridge officials.

As it stands, the only area without weight restrictions is in the Priest Lake area. 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 Rd 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
