Oregon Transportation Permit (6-OR-a)

In Oregon, a developer may need a permit for an oversize or overweight load, from Oregon Department of Transportation, on state highways.


Transportation Permit Process

6-OR-a.1 - Does the Project Require the Transportation of an Oversize or Overweight Load?

The developer will only need to secure a permit for an oversize or overweight load if the developer plans to transport a load that exceeds specified dimensions.

Trucking companies obtain an over-dimension variance permit when their truck and/or combination exceeds vehicle limits in Oregon law, ORS Chapter 818. The permits provide routing plans and restrictions for travel through the state.

Any load exceeding the following dimensions would be considered a superload:

• Loads over 17 feet travel height on any highway.
