When can a single trip permit be obtained and what is the turn-around time for approval of permits?

Permits can be obtained Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. (except holidays - see schedule of holidays. In most cases it should take approximately 45 minutes for a response from the permit clerk. However, a 4-hour turn-around time has been established to take the Unit's workload into consideration during busy periods.

When do I need to obtain an overdimension or overweight permit?

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).
