Each year, truck traffic increases in Minnesota. The Truck-Weight Education Program promotes voluntary compliance to reduce damage to public roads and highways from overweight vehicles. The program’s goal is to provide information and explanations to attendees on hauling the greatest legal weight without violating truck-weight laws, making transportation of heavy trucks legal and safe and extending road infrastructure.

 

The program also addresses issues and concerns from state, county, city, and township transportation authorities regarding truck weight. Information is provided that explains road weight regulations during various times of the year, including the winter load increase and spring load restrictions.

 

Over 4,500 participants have attended training sessions since 2003. In addition to training, the program offers a website, a truck-weight calculator, and education and outreach activities.
