7 CSR 10-2.020 - Ordering Limitation of Weights on, or Closing of, Certain State Roads

PURPOSE: This amendment removes unnecessary language while retaining the chief engineer's power to close or impose vehicle weight limits on any road in the state highway system for the purpose of the construction or maintenance of such road, or for the safety of the traveling public. Any closure or weight limit shall have a sign posted along the road to alert the traveling public.

(1) The chief engineer, or his or her designee, may close wholly or in part, or set a maximum vehicle weight limit on, any road within the state highway system as he or she finds necessary for the safety of the traveling public or for the purpose of, or related to, the construction or maintenance of the state roadway system. Any closure or maximum weight limit imposed on any state highway shall be subject to the posting of signs that shall be located along the highway in the chief engineer's sole discretion to give notice to the traveling public.
