The Public Works Department seasonally post roads to protect its public infrastructure from damages and pre-mature repairs and or improvements.
ALL 2018 WINTER ROAD POSTINGS HAVE BEEN REMOVED EFFECTIVE 04/03/2018
If you desire to use these streets in excess of the posted weight limit, an exemption certificate is required, each day you wish to use a particular street. You can obtain a certificate by calling the Department of Public Works at 284-6641. The certificate will be in writing and must be in the vehicle used for travel. Any vehicle traveling on a posted road without an exemption certificate will be subject to fines and possible restitution for road damage.
Visit this site on occasion for updates. Thank you for your support and understanding. The City of Saco has numerous streets that have year round weight limit postings. Because of inferior structural road capabilities and residential uses these roads will be posted to compliment such uses. Streets having weight limits are as follows:
Garfield Street - 5 Tons
Franklin Street - 5 Tons
Rocky Hill Road - 10 Tons
Scammon Street - 10 Tons
Shadagee Road - 5 Tons
Tasker Street - 5 Tons
These streets do not mean you can not "travel" on the road, but they do not allow for "trucking" across the road without department permission.
This list will be updated and can be changed at any time. Please take notice.
We thank you for your assistance in preserving Saco's roads and bridges.
