Kenneth Blair of Cook, Flatt and Strobel Engineers addresses Labette County commissioners and the public on weight limits in county bridges Monday. The commission room was full of farmers with questions about weight limits on bridges that require them to find alternate routes to their markets.

OSWEGO — Law officers responding to complaints recently required farm trucks carrying silage to back off of Wallace Road and find alternate routes to their destinations.

That brought a contingent of farmers to Monday’s Labette County commission meeting to ask questions and seek answers to the issue of weight limits on county bridges and routes around these bridges.
