Heavy loads limited

With the coming spring also comes the thaw. Materials will expand and contract throughout the transition of the seasons and this includes roadways. Maine law dictates a 23,000 pound weight limit on certain roads in order to protect them from damage during the thaw.

This heavy load ban is in effect until April 28 and impacted roads have orange signs posted alongside them to alert drivers. The town of Gray has  released the list of restricted roads, which includes Upper Marginal Way, Spruce Drive, Colley Hill and sections of Mayall and Depot roads. For the complete list, visit
