New Load Limits For South Hickory Street Bridge

The state’s Department of Transportation is reducing the load limit for the South Hickory Street Bridge in Fond du Lac. The new limit for the bridge between Western Avenue and South Military Road is 30 tons, which will affect semi trucks with heavy loads. Heavy trucks will have to use an alternate route. The bridge was inspected last year and found to be deteriorating prompting the new posted load limits.  The City has 34 bridges. By state law they all have to be inspected.
