A permit must be obtained if any of the following dimensions are exceeded:

  • 8' 6" wide
  • 13' 6" high
  • 75' long combination vehicle/46' long single vehicle
  • The gross weight of the vehicle or vehicle combination and load must not exceed limits imposed by statutes. (Gross weight includes weight of the motor truck or truck/tractor-trailer or semi-trailer combination, plus the heaviest load to be transported).
