Seasonal Vehicle Weight Restrictions

For current information visit our web site at or call the Traffic Department Phone: 343-8406 / Fax: 343-8488
Effective Monday, April 13, 2020 at 8:00 A.M., with limited exception, all streets owned / maintained by the Municipality of Anchorage will be subject to the following load restrictions:

Paved Streets – 75%
Gravel, RAP, and Chip Sealed Streets – 50%

Weight restrictions for legal axle loads apply to all vehicles over 10,000 GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight). These restrictions are normally imposed this time of year and could possibly be enforced through May 2020. The duration of the restrictions is dependent upon the weather and subsurface temperatures. The purpose of these restrictions is to reduce road- way damage during spring break up. This damage can be caused by vehicles exceeding certain weight limitations.
