WVC 17 C- 17 - 11 D
§17C-17-11d. Establishing maximum road highway weights.
Effective the first day of July, two thousand four, the
maximum gross vehicle weight on existing state-maintained roads and
public highways designated for gross weight vehicle load of
sixty-five thousand pounds, seventy-three thousand five hundred
pounds and eighty thousand pounds shall have a tolerance of ten
percent. All requirements for vehicle design and axle weights
otherwise established under this code remain applicable. In no
case may the commissioner authorize weight limits on any
state-maintained road or public highway that would jeopardize or
otherwise limit federal highway fund appropriations to this state.
The commissioner of highways shall, by the thirty-first day of
December, two thousand four, review and revise, as the commissioner
deems appropriate, weight limits for all state-maintained roads and
public highways and provide to the joint committee on government
and finance a report denoting all weight limits as they have been
designated on state-maintained roads and public highways.
