Simplify Your Oversize/Overweight Loads
Loads with dimensions exceeding the envelope vehicle must obtain a separate oversize/overweight trip permit. Vehicles using this permit are prohibited from crossing bridges with a posted weight limit and from travel in restricted construction zones. Vertical clearances will be the responsibility of the permittee. Permits expire one year from the beginning movement date. The permit will be issued for the pulling unit and is non-transferable and non-refundable. Loads with a gross vehicle weight exceeding 108,000 pounds are required to have a truck/trailer combination of at least six (6) axles.
Vehicles with a valid permit are not prohibited from traveling at night, during moderate rain, or on holidays if the width and length are legal. The issuance of this permit requires a signed agreement, an application from the company, General Power of Attorney giving authority to a person to execute the Agreement on behalf of the corporation and must be dated on or before the Agreement is dated. The agreement, application and power of attorney form are available from the Truck Permit Office. Annual Overweight Permits are computer generated forms, and are embossed with a state seal. The original embossed permit must be carried in the vehicle for which it was issued. They may be obtained only from the Truck Permit Office.
These permits do not allow additional length for specialised hauling equipment (i.e. car haulers, boat haulers, dromedary units). The legal length of these types of equipment is 75 feet non-inclusive of a 3 foot front overhang and a 4 foot rear overhang.
