The Federal Highway Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, issued regulation 23 CFR 658.19 requiring states to allow reasonable truck access within one (1) mile of the National Truck Network, the Monroe County Road Commission intends to protect, maintain and improve roads in the County of Monroe, Michigan and has developed a truck operators map to accommodate commercial traffic along County roads, to be enforced by township truck route ordinances. A resolution was passed in order to accomplish this and can be found here.


Miscellaneous Closures
