Spring thaw along with spring rains can cause the roads to be soft and easily damaged by heavy loads and traffic. State law allows counties to limit vehicle weight for up to 90 days per year to help protect secondary roads from damage and to make roads safer for the traveling public.
Those who need to use embargoed roads and are above the embargo weight limit can request an embargo permit from the Linn County Secondary Road Department. This typically applies to school buses, garbage trucks, and construction deliveries.

Embargoes do not apply to County maintenance vehicles, emergency vehicles, or implements of husbandry.
