Truck legislation put forth for future I-41

U.S. Reps. Tom Petri and Reid Ribble have introduced legislation to ensure currently operating trucks can continue to use the future Interstate 41 set to be designated an interstate highway as early as next year.

Both Wisconsin Republicans are members of the House of Representative's Transportation and Infrastructure Committee.

Under federal law, trucks over 80,000 pounds in gross vehicle weight cannot operate on Interstate highways. There have been concerns that the weight limit would harm Wisconsin's local economy and pose safety risks for communities because oversized trucks would be forced to use local roadways.

The bill would grand­father in trucks currently operating when U.S. 41 is designated part of the Interstate Highway System. Similar provisions have been enacted elsewhere.
