Town restricts weights to preserve some roads
In a split vote, the Kinnickinnic Town Board on Sept. 6 passed a law making Class B highways out of Quarry, Liberty, Saddle Club and Chapman roads. These roads will now have axle-weight restriction of 60% of ordinary weight restrictions.
Heavy trucks that have business on these roads will still be able to use them.
"We are trying to stop trucks from using these roads to get from A to B, when they can use county roads," Town Board Chairman Roger VanBeek said.
