Weight limits


Recommended Posts

While "researching" Rt 219 in Pennsylvania via Street View, I came across a bypass at Ridgeway, Pa. Weight limit 7000lbs.   Its an old image so it may not even be there anymore. First question is, is that 7000lbs combined weight of truck and trailer? Second question is,  does that weight limit mean commercial only or everybody.  My boat/trailer combi is 6000lbs. Add the truck and I'm about 11,000lbs.  Am I required to take the bypass?

Image result for weight limit posted signs

I tried to screen capture the street view signage but this site wouldn't allow it. Basically, the only difference between this picture and the street view picture is that the street view only says, "No Trucks over 7000 LBS."

I just noticed further up the street where the split actually occurs. There is another sign there that says, TRUCKS over 7000lbs...Gross Weight.  I assume that means combined.

I would call the the D.P.W. or the Highway Dept.
