The North Dakota Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program addresses concerns from state, county, city and township transportation authorities regarding damage from heavy trucks. Explanations are provided which explain road weights during various times of the year. The program promotes voluntary truck-weight compliance, to reduce damage to public roads and highways from overweight vehicles. The goal is to provide information and explanations to attendees on how to haul the most legal weight, without violating the truck-weight laws. How you configure your truck, with proper axle spacing and tire size makes a difference.
The North Dakota Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program is funded by North Dakota Department of Transportation. The program is being coordinated by North Dakota Technical Assistance Program (NDLTAP)/Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) - North Dakota State University (NDSU) in collaboration with North Dakota Highway Patrol.
Professional, easy-to-understand “take home” materials to assist you with your own configurations and options will be provided.
Please Note: This is not a “permitting” class for those who haul over-dimensional or overweight equipment that requires an oversize permit from either the state or county agencies. The class does cover basic permitting information.
This workshop includes coffee breaks and program materials. Registrants are on their own for lunch. Disability accommodations are available upon request – Registration of more than three members from the same entity/company requires prior approval, Denise Brown (701) 328-9856, firstname.lastname@example.org
