A firm and frozen road can carry heavy loads quite well but our precious roads become vulnerable during the Spring melt. Heavy loads can destroy a thawing road. This is why we have road restrictions. Haulers are responsible to know when road restrictions are “on” and can face hefty fines when violations occur. Needlessly ripping up a road is like taking money out of your own pocket since it is your taxes that will go up to make needed repairs.

Fun Fact:

Townships maintain approximately 39% of Minnesota’s roads (over 55,000 miles), and are our largest budget expense. Springvale Township maintains 37.25 miles of these roads.
