Dakota Street

The Jefferson City Council may consider placing a load limit on this stretch of Dakota Street next year.

The Jefferson City Council discussed placing load limits on W. Dakota Street during its regular meeting March 2.

Some council members think trucks coming down I-29 from the north are bypassing the weigh station by cutting across to County Rd 1B and then using W. Dakota to get back on the interstate. Union County has seven-ton load limits on its roads until the frost is out of the ground. However, considering the time frame to advertise and pass a city load limit, the council decided it had to wait until next year.
