LUCAS, FULTON AND WILLIAMS COUNTY WEIGHT ROUTES

The Port of Toledo is connected to Michigan and Canada by designated heavy haul routes known as “Michigan Legal” routes. These special routes allow trucks to load up to 154,000 lbs. gross when moving cargo to or from Michigan or Canada with special permits. Other roads in Ohio typically have a maximum weight restriction of 80,000 lbs. gross. Michigan Legal routes allow Toledo Seaport users to achieve greater economies of scale and provide a competitive advantage.
