Each year, truck traffic is increasing in Minnesota. Recently, new legislation has changed some long standing truck weight laws. Additional gross weights are possible for several commodities providing the trucks are configured correctly and the additional weight is authorized by the regulating road authority. The Minnesota Truck Weight Education Program addresses concerns from state, county, city, and township transportation authorities regarding damage from heavy trucks.
