Axle weight limits are restricted on certain streets in the City of Orono to protect these streets from damage when road and weather conditions warrant, in accordance with State and City regulations.
Most city streets will be posted and limited to 4 ton per axle weight limit. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead for moving or construction projects during the spring thaw season since weight restrictions will be enforced and large trucks will not be allowed on restricted streets.
Orono only regulates the city streets listed by resolution. These streets can be found on the Spring Weight Restrictions Map (PDF).
Full details and an alphabetical list of restricted streets can be viewed in the weight restriction resolution (PDF).
The City of Orono follows the timings set by MnDOT for the metro district. We will update our website as we are notified for when restrictions are to be removed.
