Hinsdale, Brattleboro bridge E-2 weight restrictions.

The E-2 designation is to exclude all combination and single unit certified vehicles from crossing a specific bridge. For this to make more sense, I will mention several sections of state motor vehicle law.
RSA 266:18-a Weight on Non-interstate and General Highway System:
This section defines maximum vehicle weights for all highways not considered Interstate Highways. It also defines requirements for individual axle weights and spacings, and generally limits vehicle weights to:
Two axle single unit: 33,400 lbs.
Three axle single unit: 55,000 lbs.
Four axle single unit: 60,000 lbs.
Combination vehicles (Tractor -Trailer): 80,000 lbs.
RSA 266:18-b Weight on Non-interstate and General Highway System for vehicles with Additional Registration: This section defines maximum vehicle weights for all highways not considered Interstate Highways. It also defines requirements for individual axle weights and spacings, and generally limits vehicle weights to:
Two axle single unit: 37,400 lbs.
Three axle single unit: 65,000 lbs.
Four axle single unit: 73,000 lbs.
Combination vehicles (Tractor -Trailer): 99,000 lbs.
RSA 266:18-d Additional Certification and Registration:
This section defines a process of Certification for vehicles to be eligible to purchase the additional registration to enable
them to travel at the higher weight limits allowed in RSA 266:18-b.(This is why we use the term Certified Loads for the
higher set of weight limits.)
RSA 266:18-c General Weight Provisions:
Section V describes the standard weight limit signs, and allows the commissioner of transportation to post standardized
signs designating Caution Crossing Bridges and Excluded Bridges.(This includes the 'E-2' sign that excludes certified
single unit and combination vehicles from crossing a bridge while traveling at the higher weight limit)
