Understanding Bridge Weight Limit Signs in Franklin County
Recently, Franklin County has been required by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to have our bridges evaluated for carrying Specialized Hauling Vehicles (SHV). To fulfill this requirement, Franklin County contracted with engineering consultants to load rate bridges that met the criteria for this requirement. As a result, several bridges in Franklin County were required to be posted.
