Overweight and/or Overdimensional Loads
Further to the M.D.’s Streets and Roads Bylaw 03/08, no person shall operate a vehicle in excess of the load limits or the size limits as legislated in the Commercial Vehicle and Weight Regulation, or in contravention of any prohibitions prescribed by the M.D. without first obtaining approval from the M.D.
Any overweight/overdimensional haul on an M.D. road consisting of more than ten (10) single point to point vehicles/loads per day; or hundred (100) single point to point vehicles/loads in a thirty (30) day period requires a Road Use Agreement. An Overweight/Overdimensional Permit is required for fewer overweight/overdimensional hauls not meeting these thresholds.
To apply for a Road Use Agreement, please submit a Road Use Agreement application to the M.D.’s Operations Coordinator at email@example.com.
Overweight/Overdimensional Permits can be obtained through the Provincial TRAVIS (Transportation Routing and Vehicle Information System) permitting system or through Roadata Services Ltd in the following ways:
