When high temperatures arise, so do the restrictions for overweight truckers in North Dakota. It is important to take note that when the temperatures reach over 90 degrees, overweight trucks can not drive on secondary roads. They have to remain on the interstates until the roads cool back down. This is because most secondary roads are made with asphalt and can not handle the combination of high temperatures and the weight from the truck. The only exception from the high temperature restriction is for state and national emergencies.
