Hauling restricted on some roads

| February 8, 2024 1:00 AM

SANDPOINT — Road weight limits continue in the county, with hauling prohibited on some roads south of the Long Bridge.

As a result, no early morning hauling is allowed on any Bonner County-maintained road that is posted with weight limits.

District 1 (south of the Long Bridge) — All roads are posted with weight limits. Comeback Bay Lane, E. Comeback Bay Lane, Birch Haven Drive, Birch Banks Road, Hanford Drive, Sweeney Drive, Hanley Lane, and Bella Circle are posted as no hauling. This means that the road is open to local residential traffic only; no trailers or loaded truck beds are allowed.

District 2 (Priest River/Priest Lake) — All roads are posted with weight limits.

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

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.

As a reminder, a red flag (or no flag) on a sign indicates weight limits are in effect for that roadway.

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; or go online to
