PORT ANGELES — City engineers will post vehicle weight limits on the Eighth Street bridges spanning Valley Creek and Tumwater Creek in the coming weeks.
New weight limits are 20 tons for two-axle vehicles, 30 tons for three-axle vehicles and 36 tons for four-axle vehicles, city officials said.
The weight restrictions are the result of a certified engineering analysis ordered by the state Department of Transportation.
Officials don’t expect the weight limits to affect many businesses.
But according to City Manager Michael Quinn, the weight limits could affect city operations.
