News & Notices


The Town of Washington will impose seasonal weight restrictions on all town roads beginning Monday April 1, 2019 at 6:00 AM.

Weight restrictions will be in effect until the spring thaw period is over. Weight limits are put in place to protect the integrity of our roadways. No heavy trucks will be allowed on town roads during the weight restriction period.

Road weight limits do not apply to a motor vehicle that is being operated to deliver propane for heating purposes if specific conditions are met. Refer to Wisconsin Statutes Chapter 348 for complete details.

But best to plan ahead and check your propane tank and arrange for delivery before the road weight limits go into effect, if needed!

Call Paul Chlapecka, Town Foreman, at 715-891-4833 for any questions.
