BIG LOADS DAMAGE ROADS

 

Nature is hard on our roads, but heavy loads are even harder. Hauling gravel, sand, lumber, farm produce, animal waste, etc. all take their toll on our roads. Most roads in Missaukee County were not built for heavy loads. When subjected to heavy loads, the roads deflect and deform. While slowing down the vehicle helps the pavement withstand the load, it does not stop the deflection from taking place. As aged asphalt is more brittle than new, most older roads have surfaces that are not elastic enough to fully recover when the load is removed. Cracks form and those cracks spread with each successive loading. Eventually, with repeated loading, the cracking causes the pavement to completely lose its integrity and road failure results. We strive for the best possible roads with the funds we are given. To help make our dollars go farther, please do not overload. Drive slowly when hauling any load. We know weight restrictions are inconvenient, but in order to have the best roads possible, they are necessary. Let's all work together to keep our roads in the best possible condition and safe for everyone.
