[ISP] Troopers Enforce Weight Limit on Birch Creek Bridge--SR 46
Start Date: 10/7/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 10/7/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Clay County— Troopers from the Indiana State Police Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Division are currently and will continue, to enforce the three ton weight limit for the Birch Creek Bridge on State Road 46 approximately one mile west of State Road 59. Troopers are using portable scales to weigh vehicles and drivers not in compliance with the weight restrictions will be cited. Depending on the amount of weight a particular vehicle exceeds the limit; fines can be in the thousands of dollars. Troopers prefer voluntary compliance with the temporary weight restrictions over traffic citations. Vehicles over three tons are required to use alternate routes.

Based on a recent bridge inspection, the Indiana Department of Transportation issued the restrictions on August 23, 2013. INDOT has placed adequate signs displaying “Weight Limit 3 Tons” all around the area. INDOT is working to accelerate construction on the bridge to increase weight limits. For questions concerning INDOT and the Birch Creek Bridge project, please contact Debbie Calder at 765-361-5236 or dcalder@indot.in.gov.

Questions concerning the ISP enforcement efforts should be directed to ISP Sergeant Joe Watts.
