Weight Limits for Hines Drive Bridges

Wayne County Parks has been informed by MDOT that no vehicles weighing more than 3 tons can travel along Hines Drive due to weight restrictions on the bridges. This includes school busses, garbage trucks and dump trucks. The Wayne County Weigh Master will be monitoring the traffic and issuing warnings/tickets to vehicles that are over three tons.
