  • Abstract:
    2007 AB 238 requires the Department of Transportation to conduct a comprehensive study to review the system of

    motor vehicle weight limits on Wisconsin's highways and bridges. Laws regarding allowable weight limits, lengths, and

    widths of commercial motor vehicles are designed to ensure safe vehicle operation on Wisconsin's roadways and to

    preserve the state's investment in highway and bridge infrastructure. Federal laws govern limits on the Interstates and

    other selected state highways. Truck size and weight laws affect the cost of transportation for Wisconsin's freight

    shippers and carriers. At the same time, studies have documented the impacts of heavily loaded and overloaded trucks

    on pavement surfaces and bridge structures. In light of changing patterns of economic growth and logistics, continued

    increases in truck traffic, and numerous requests for changes to laws, it has become apparent that a comprehensive

    review of Wisconsin's state TS&W laws is needed.
