Additionally, it provides a framework for increased cross-sector, multi-jurisdictional, and multi-modal coordination and partnerships.

2020-2021 Frost laws, thaw laws and seasonal weight restrictions. Learn the details of the winter frost laws, spring thaw laws and seasonal weight restrictions. Details for the USA and Canada by State/Province. Many areas incorporate temporary special weight limits and restrictions (frost or thaw laws) during the winter and spring months of the year. These temporary restrictions are usually referred to as “frost laws” or “thaw laws” and implemented typically during the month or March and April. In some Northern States and Provinces frost laws can still be in effect in July as it’s much colder in the North. Since these restrictions are implemented on a “as needed” basis it is possible many of the official government websites may not have published this temporary restriction in a convenient place as frost laws are also subject to change at any moment based on the temperature of the roads core. You want to be certain to check with the appropriate officials to verify the latest changes in the laws. 2020-2021 United States: Restrictions on winter and spring seasonal weight laws. Idaho

2020 North Dakota winter frost/spring thaw laws and seasonal weight restrictions. The North Dakota winter frost and spring thaw laws – seasonal weight restrictions. Seasonal weight restrictions are needed to protect the roads and highways during the winter months (usually between November 1 and April 1 each year but can extend towards the end of May) from being damaged by transporting heavy weights over them. While some of them are closed others remain open with weight limits significantly reduced in order to prevent damages. North Dakota implements protective measures to protect their infrastructure – and for a good reason. Make sure you’re educated on why the restrictions exist. In most of North Dakota the colder winter temperatures cause the ground to freeze and become brittle. However, the earth underneath it is warmer and typically does not freeze so water exists in the roads aggregate when temperatures are frozen but not in the minus for long periods of time. What this does when large weights are transported over it is causes stress cracks and even buckling. These cracks lead to the
