Truck Restrictions on ID 53
ID 53
Between Washington State Line (near Hauser) and US 95 (3 miles east of the Rathdrum area). There is an axle load limit in effect. Speed restrictions are in force. Axle weight limit 14000 lbs. Truck speed limit 30 MPH .

Comment: There is a weight limit of 14,000 pounds per axle, or legal axle weights, whichever is less, on State Highway 53 from milepost 0 (Washington/Idaho state line) to milepost 14.24 (junction of US-95 and SH-53). Commercial vehicles 10,000 GVW and greater will be restricted to 30MPH. Weight and speed restrictions are in place because the highway is showing heavy signs of stress from the freeze/thaw cycle.
