OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. — Ottawa County officials are reminding residents that seasonal weight restrictions take effect Tuesday, March 1.

The Ottawa County Road Commission says restrictions begin at 6 a.m.

We’re told weight restrictions are necessary to protect the roads by reducing travel speeds and axle-loading limits on some vehicles.

The county explains roads can be damaged by heavier vehicles during thaw periods.
