Ag Equipment impacts reviewed

Posted:

CASHTON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Heavy agricultural equipment has the potential to cause big damage to Wisconsin roadways.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation and Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection are hosting a series of town hall meetings across the state this month.

On Wednesday, the study panel stopped in Cashton. Those in attendance listened to the proposed weight and height limits for both equipment and roadways. They also asked questions afterward about how the changes could affect their lifestyles.

The study panel will make three more stops throughout the state within the next week. Afterward, they will give the feedback acquired from the town hall sessions to legislators, who will then have the option of changing their proposed limits.
