2021 New York winter frost/spring thaw laws and seasonal weight restrictions.

Our research has turned up very little about New York state frost and thaw laws. Since a special permit is required in order to move a shipment the NYDOT determines the required route or denies the request until a later date. This makes projection for logistics providers difficult. However you may wish to visit their website: https://www.dot.ny.gov/nypermits/special-hauling-permits

Oversize restrictions.

There are no restrictions (we are aware of) for oversize loads during the winter and spring thaw months. This is not to suggest that no maximums will be imposed at any given time. Be sure to check with the NY DOT load permitting office for clarification if you plan on transporting a oversize object during the winter and spring seasons.
