Self-Issue Crane Permits

Carriers utilizing the self-issue permit process must fall into one of the established crane categories. Crane categories have been established for two (2), three (3), four (4) and five (5) axle cranes. These categories include structures that require a five (5) mile per hour speed limit when being crossed and also listings of structures that cannot be crossed to include bridges and culverts. The crane categories were developed based on actual measured weights and axle spacings provided by the Department of Motor Vehicles. These lists are dynamic and minor changes are anticipated as bridges are either replaced or re-rated due to a change in condition. It is anticipated, other than; an emergency situation (i.e. structure posting/restriction/closing), any updates will be done on an annual basis...
