The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association is pleased to publish this Oversize/ Overweight Permit Manual.

Each state analysis includes information in a standardized format: contact, legal limits, special permit limits, general restrictions, types of permits available, fees, escort needs, fines, and restricted travel areas. Telephone numbers, locations, and hours of operation are listed for ports of entry and permit branches. However, readers are always advised to check with the state offices on current laws and procedures. This project could not have been completed without the advice and consultation of many state officials. We thank all of those who provided permit manuals, maps, laws, regulations, and various other forms of documentation.

Legal Notice This SC&RA Oversize/Overweight Permit Manual is intended only to provide concise, easily read information, useful in planning movements of overdimensional and overweight loads. This Permit Manual is not intended to be an accurate summary of all the applicable laws and regulations. Users of the Permit Manual should confirm the information contained herein before dispatching vehicles and loads. The SC&RA cautions Permit Manual users that state laws and regulations are subject to change without notice, and that some time elapses between the effective date of such changes and the amendment of the Permit Manual to reflect those changes. The SC&RA assumes no responsibility for accident, injury, loss or claim, penalties or any other damage resulting from reliance on the contents of this Permit Manual.

Inclement Weather During the spring thaw, a soft layer below the pavement and above the frost line can create weakness in the pavement. This is most prominent on routes that are designated as seasonal and the shoulder portion of all routes.

For this reason, during the period of weight restriction a number of precautions are taken in order to protect the condition of the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) jurisdiction infrastructure. First, reduced weight limits are in effect for seasonal routes. Seasonal routes are shown on the MDOT Truck Operators' Map. Signs are typically posted indicating seasonal limits on these routes. Secondly, overweight permits are not issued for any MDOT jurisdiction routes. Lastly, in order to protect shoulder conditions, permits for vehicles or loads exceeding 14 feet in width are not issued. Certain emergency situations may receive exceptions to these guidelines.

For additional information see Truck Weight and Vehicle Restrictions ( http://mdotwas1.mdot.state.mi.us/public/alerts/bulletins.cfm?bulletin=active&CFID=2456965&CFTOKEN=9 6360165&jsessionid=ZnKPFbglYmIrgyT_ZwhwWpu Permit Information Required — Load description; load dimensions, trailer length, overall dimensions; net weight; gross weight; tire sizes; axle weights; axle spacing; origin and destination; routes to be traveled;

No overweight permits are issued when weight restrictions are in affect.
