Virginia Overweight Citations: Beware of Weight Limitations on Route 50 in Fairfax County, Virginia

Motor Carriers that are making deliveries to points in Fairfax County, Virginia should be aware that trucks and tractor trailers using Route 50 (Arlington Blvd.) West of 495 (Capital Beltway) are limited to 8 Tons maximum weight. This limitation starts at Prosperity Avenue and continues to the intersection of Route 50 and Route 29. The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles has been thoroughly enforcing this limitation over the last year with checkpoints and patrols. Being overweight in the restricted zone can result in a large fine levied against your company. Inform your drivers to check their routes and avoid this section of Route 50, even if making local deliveries.
