Rain prompts gravel road weight restriction in Ward County

WARD COUNTY, N.D. – Ward County has implemented a 12,000-lbs. “gross vehicle weight,” or GVW, road restriction on all gravel roads across the county, effective immediately.

The county says it’s due to the ongoing rain, current roadway conditions, and travel safety.

The restriction will stay in place until noon on Sat., Sept. 14, unless otherwise notified.
