Town of Jackson 2017 Spring Road Restrictions

Town of Jackson 2017

Spring Road Restrictions

 

 

 

The Town of Jackson will once again be Posting weight restrictions Tuesday February 21st as determined by Burnett County Highway Commissioner and will continue to be Posted until such time the Burnett County Highway Commissioner determines that County and Township roads are thawed and supportive to heavy traffic. Generally this time frame is from March 15th of each year to May 15th. Unseasonably warm weather and spring thaw this year have caused restrictions to be posted earler.

 

“ During spring, thawing begins at the pavement surface and moves downward.  This can mean frost under the pavement surface may still extend down to a depth of  48-72 inches, while thawing of the top 18-20 inches under the pavement has occurred; this is the condition that creates so many problems with the pavement.  As the top 18-20 inches begins to thaw the moisture can not drain downward due to the frozen soil below.  This trapped moisture causes the soil in this depth to act like a “sponge” and thus allows the bituminous pavements to move up and down due to vehicle weights traveling on the pavement surface.  The pavement can be weakened by this continuous oscillating movement and thus begin to crack and break down.  This is also the time of year when most potholes are created. For this reason seasonal weight restrictions are imposed on roads each year.”  (State of Wisconsin Publication  “ Frozen Road Declaration/Spring Weight Restriction Decision Process,” May 6th 2005 )

 

THE TOWN OF JACKSON WEIGHT RESRTICTIONS WILL POST AT 4 1/2 TON PER AXEL.  THIS WILL BE INFORCED WITH THE HELP OF THE BURNETT COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT.
