A 40,000-pound weight restriction is a huge hassle for many people, such as construction workers and shop owners who rely on deliveries. When contractors can bring more concrete or I-beams over the bridge at one time, it saves them time, saves the person paying for the project money, and the job gets done quicker. It’s that simple. When a store can have more inventory delivered in one load, it’s better for them and means less truck traffic on the island.
