The department&#39;s website calendar will show what days the limits are in effect. On those days, haulers will need permits to haul legal limits that are over the load limits.<br /><br />County Engineer Tom Hickman said the limits are one way to reduce damage to the roads.<br /><br />He said, &ldquo;The freeze-thaw cycle is why I do this. Because when the road base freezes and then thaws out, it gets soft and it comes apart if you put too much weight on it.&rdquo;<br /> Mon, 23 Jan 2012 19:35:34 +0000 James Lenz 9058 at http://tristatesradio.com McDonough County Road Weight Limits are Posted
