LOGAN — Hocking County Engineer Bill Shaw announced the reduction of the legal load limit by 50 percent on all county roads will be effective Feb. 1 until April 30, with the exception of CR #33 (Chieftain Drive), CR #33B (Hocking Drive), and CR #25 (Haydenville Road). 

However, should the weather warrant, the reduction period may be extended.

According to Bill Shaw, this reduction is intended to reduce the amount of road damage which occurs annually during the freeze-thaw cycle.

The Hocking County Engineer's Office will be issuing permits to those wishing to exceed the 50 percent load limit once they have filed a "Road Repair Agreement" with the Engineer's office.
