Road Weight Restrictions

Restrictions to Prevent Road Damage

 
road weight.jpg
The City imposes road weight restrictions to prevent damage to our roads. It is the operators’ responsibility to be aware of road restrictive weights. Road restrictions may be changed without notice.

As of February 3, 2020, overweight permission may be requested for non-divisible loads (for example: concrete pumps, cranes) through TRAVIS. Information about TRAVIS may be found here and here.

The City is working on partnering with a permitting agent. More information will be available soon.

Email permits will no longer be issued after March 1, 2020. Annual permits issued for 2020 will expire on March 1, 2020.

If you are able to break down your loads (for example; gravel trucks, concrete mixers), a permit is not required but all current road bans within the City must be adhered to.
