Bridge Receives New Weight Restriction in Jefferson County 
September 30, 2013 
JEFFERSON COUNTY-A bridge in Jefferson County was posted last Friday with a new weight restriction as part of a statewide initiative to ensure bridge safety and preserve our aging system.

Below are details of the posting.  The restriction includes combination loads, primarily tractor trailers, which have higher weight limits because of the difference in how their weight is distributed:

·         Route 4005, Richardsville Road, over North Fork Creek in Warsaw Township, 32 tons or 38 tons combination loads
