OLYMPIA - Based on field observation and weather predictions, Thurston County will be lifting the emergency load restrictions on all unincorporated roads with in the county at 12:01 am Monday December 16, 2013. Current restrictions will remain in effect until that time.

The restrictions were put in place earlier this week when the area began to thaw after weeks of freezing temperatures. The conditions created the threat of severe damage to county roads from heavy trucks as they put pressure on thawing pavement with frozen roadbeds beneath.
