New weight limits for highway traffic

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.  Beginning February 14, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) will enforce new weight limits on several State Highways in the Fayetteville shale areas, according to AHTD officials. Arkansas Highway Police will strictly enforce the newly posted limits that have been established because of significant damage to the roadways from existing traffic.

The new restrictions are located on a total of 133 miles on 13 sections of highways in Cleburne, Conway, Faulkner, Independence, Van Buren and White Counties. Eight of those sections will drop from 80,000 pound limits to 73,280.
