BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Warm weather could lead to early load restrictions on North Dakota highways.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation says seasonal load restrictions may be implemented on some state highways as early as next week.

Areas that could see the first load restrictions of the season include highways in southwestern and southeastern North Dakota.

Normally, load restrictions are placed on some state highways from March to May, depending on the weather. But load restrictions have been put into effect as early as mid-February.

The restrictions typically remain in effect until roadbeds are stabilized enough to carry normal traffic.
