All three existing weigh stations in Hardin, Fulton, and Henderson counties will be bypassed or removed due to future interstate and interchange construction plans.
These weigh stations were assessed for the amount of revenue collected against operating expenses, the ratio of citations issued per violation, and the impact each weigh station had on overall safety.
Researchers developed guidelines decision makers and stakeholders
can use to determine the outcome
for each of the three weigh stations: permanently close, replace with a new facility, or convert to remote monitoring.
This guidance can be applied beyond the three facilities in the study, to help make future decisions on weigh stations across Kentucky.
