UNDERSTANDING BRIDGE WEIGHT LIMIT SIGNS IN FRANKLIN COUNTY
Recently, Franklin County has been required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to have our bridges evaluated for carrying Specialized Hauling Vehicles (SHV). To fulfill this requirement, Franklin County contracted with KPFF Consulting Engineers to load rate bridges which met the criteria for this requirement. As a result, several bridges in Franklin County were required to be posted. The purpose of the following links is to help Franklin County road users to better understand the bridge posting signs.
For the most current details or for additional questions about these bridge weight limits, please contact Franklin County Public Works at 509-545-3514 or by email at PublicWorks@co.franklin.wa.us
