Five public meetings upcoming to discuss highway weight limits for ag equipment

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.

More information is available on the DOT’s Web site, accessible at Wisconsin.Gov.
