GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Five town hall meetings will be held throughout Wisconsin during the next month, on the issue of weight limits for agricultural equipment on state highways.
A study group with more than 20 stakeholders recommended new height and width requirements for farm equipment that travels on Wisconsin highways.
Weight allowances for so-called “implements of husbandry” would be 15 percent above those recommended by federal bridge formulas – except where posted, and during spring thaws.
The UW Extension Service will co-sponsor the five upcoming public meetings, along with agriculture and transportation officials.
Those meetings will all start at 7 p.m. on August 19th in Madison, August 20th near Stratford, the 28th in Cashton, the 29th in Green Bay, and September 3rd in Chippewa Falls.
