New Brunswick frost laws

2020 New Brunswick frost laws, seasonal load weight and speed restrictions.

Spring frost law/thaw law weight restrictions.

Spring weight restrictions for truck traffic will come into effect on Monday, March 11th, in southern New Brunswick and on Monday , March 18th , in northern New Brunswick. Restrictions will continue until midnight on Sunday, May 14th, in southern New Brunswick and midnight, Sunday, May 21th, in northern New Brunswick. These dates are dependent upon weather conditions and are subject to change.

“These weight limits are put in place every spring to ensure that our road infrastructure does not suffer damage during the annual frost and thaw cycle,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser. “We provide this notice to the trucking community so that they may prepare to reduce their loads or plan alternate routes during this period. I thank members of the industry for the co-operation and patience they demonstrate each year while these restrictions are in place.”

For the purpose of these restrictions, northern New Brunswick includes:

  • The area lying within the counties of Northumberland, Gloucester, Restigouche, Madawaska and Victoria.
  • The portion of Route 108 within York County.
  • The portion of Gordon Vale Road and Holtville Road within York County.
  • The portion of Route 123 within Sunbury County and Queens County.
  • The portion of Bloomfield Ridge Road between Holtville Road and Route 625.
  • The portion of Route 625 between Gordon Vale Road and Route 8.

Details are available online. Should weather conditions warrant, district engineers are authorized to close roads to trucks or impose weight restrictions on highways or portions of highways.

Manitoba Frost Laws

2020 Manitoba frost laws, seasonal load weight and speed restrictions.

Manitoba Spring Road Restrictions (SRR) program.

The Manitoba Ministry of Infrastructure divides its province into three sections, with each section having a unique thaw restriction start and end date. In 2020, it will begin its spring road restrictions for Region A and Region B of the province at 6 a.m. on Friday, March 10. Weight restrictions are scheduled to end at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31.

The allowable axle weights on weight restricted roads during the spring season are based on the percentages of the legal axle weights, with some exceptions for the single steer axles and in situations where essential commodities are being shipped. There are two levels of spring weight restrictions in Manitoba depending on the strength and surface conditions of the pavement structures. The Level 1 weight restriction applies to weak pavements while the Level 2 weight restriction applies to very weak pavements. The allowable axle weights on different axle configurations are calculated as follows:

Level 1 Spring Weight Restrictions:

  1. On a single steering axle of a single or tandem drive truck tractor:
    • 10 kg per millimeter width of tire up to a maximum of 5,500 kg on all highways.
  2. On a single steering axle of a straight truck or a tridem drive truck tractor:
    • Tire size 305 mm or less: 10 kg per millimeter width of tire up to a maximum of 5,500 kg on all highways.
    • Tire size greater than 305 mm: 9 kg per millimeter width of tire up to a maximum of 6,570 kg on all highways.
  3. On a tandem steering axle group of a straight truck:
    • 9 kg per mm width of tire multiplied by 0.90 (download factor) up to a maximum of 12,240 kg on RTAC Routes or Class A1 highways and up to a maximum of 9,900 kg on Class B1 highways.
  4. On all other axle groups:
    • 9 kg per millimetre width of tire up to a maximum of 90% of the legal axle group weights on all highways.

Level 2 Spring Weight Restrictions:

  1. On all single steering axles of all vehicle configurations:
    • 6.5 kg per millimeter width of tire up to a maximum of 65% of the legal axle weights on Class A1 and Class B1 highways.
  2. On a tandem steering axle of a straight truck:
    • 6.5 kg per millimeter width of tire multiplied by 0.90 (download factor) up to a maximum of 8,840 kg on Class A1 highways and up to a maximum of 7,150 kg on Class B1 highways.
  3. On all other axle groups:
    • 6.5 kg per millimeter width of tire up to a maximum of 65% of the legal axle weights on Class A1 and Class B1 highways.

Road restrictions for Region C, the northern most regions, will begin at 6 a.m. on Sunday, March 12, and end at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, June 10. Region C is defined as the rest of the province north of the virtual line in Region B.

Spring Weight Restrictions are classified as Level 1 and Level 2 (see table below).

Example of Maximum Allowable Axle Weights. Level 1 Spring Weight Restriction, Reduce Axle Weights to 90% Maximum Allowable Weights. Level 2 Spring Weight Restriction, Reduce Axle Weights to 65% Maximum Allowable Weights. A complete list of Charts of Allowable Axle Weights can be found at the following link: http://gov.mb.ca/mit/srr/restrictions.html

Manitoba publishes a list of road bans as conditions change. Go to the above link and look for “Road Bans” in the left column. These bans identify specific roadways and the ban imposed in percent of rated axle capacity.

It is important for truck drivers and trucking company dispatchers to make certain they are operating in accordance with the Manitoba posted frost laws, seasonal load weight and speed restrictions that are posted. Changes to these restrictions is subject to change hourly during the winter and spring months. You are expected to be aware of these changes and operate accordingly.

Alberta frost law restrictions.

2020 Alberta frost laws, seasonal load weight and speed restrictions.

Just like any other Province Alberta has seasonal frost laws. However The Alberta Ministry of Transportation offers a e-mail notification service on their website to drivers who wish to stay up-to-date and legal on the latest road ban orders and seasonal weight restrictions. According to the website seasonal weights for heavy haul trucking are set according to the following schedule:

Spring: weather dependent, subject to thaw depth readings and begins at same time as Period 1 (weather dependent, subject to thaw readings of at last 25 cm.

Winter: weather dependent, subject to frost depth readings of one meter or more. In winter, trucking weights can be greater because the pavement is less vulnerable when the ground beneath it is frozen, providing support.

Seasonal Weights

Seasonal weights for heavy haul trucking are set according to the following schedule:

  • Spring: weather dependent, subject to thaw depth readings of at least 25 centimeters and begins at same time as Period 1 weights for service rigs
  • Post-Thaw: June 16 (may begin one week earlier or one week later)
  • Summer: July 1
  • Fall: September 1
  • Winter: weather dependent, subject to frost depth readings of 75 centimeters or more.

Seasonal weights for service rigs are set according to the following schedule:

  • Period 1: weather dependent, subject to thaw depth readings of at least 25 centimeters and begins at same time as Spring weights for heavy haul
  • Period 2: June 16 (may begin one week earlier or one week later)
  • Period 3: July 16
  • Period 4: September 1

Alberta also publishes a “Road Ban List” of major highways. Typically, the document lists weight restrictions of 90% of 75% of permitted axle weights. Access to the bans list can be viewed here: https://www.alberta.ca/road-restrictions-and-bans-overview.aspx#form15865

2019 Georgia State Shipping Regulations

2019 Georgia state DOT shipping laws, regulations, rules, limitations, for oversize and heavy-haul trucking permits.

Heavy-haul trucking and pilot cars.

Locate oversize, heavy-haul trucking companies and pilot cars.

Georgia pilot cars and truck escorts for hire.
Georgia oversize and heavy-haul trucking companies for hire.
Georgia state oversize and heavy haul trucking permits.



Do I need a trucking permit? Legal load limits.

Georgia maximum load limits until a trucking permit is required.

Length: 75 feet maximum overall combined including overhang. However, 60 feet maximum length on some routes.
Width: 8 feet maximum on some roads but on main highways and Interstates 8 feet and 6 inches is the maximum width.
Height: 13 feet and 6 inches.
Weight: GVW 80,000 pounds overall combined. Single axle is 20,340 pounds, tandem axles is 34,000 pounds and tridem axles depends on the spacing  but is 20,340 pounds maximum on each axle in the configuration.
Overhang: Overhang in not detailed much by Georgia state DOT so if you are in excess of 60 feet in length overall combined we strongly suggest you contact the oversize permitting office by telephone below.

Routine oversize and heavy-haul trucking permits.

These maximum dimensions/weights are considered routine oversize or heavy-haul trucking permits in Georgia:

Length: Under 120 feet long was the old rule but as of 02/28/19 it seems there’s no limit on length if that is the only dimension over routine. Also a legal
Weight: Any single axle routine permit is 23,000 pounds, tandem axles is 46,000 pounds, tridem axles is 60,000 pounds, quadem axles is 92,000 pounds. Gross maximum routine permit weight limitations are: 5 axles 100,000 pounds, 6 axles 125,000 pounds, 7 axles 148,000 pounds, 8 axles 150,000 pounds. If over 150,000 pounds it’s a superload.
Width: 15 feet and 6 inches. However, on some routes 16 feet is permitted with 1 front pilot car and 1 rear escort. Mobiles and pre-fab homes are limited to 95 feet in length overall.
Height: Under 14 feet tall.
Overhang: This is a very odd state as far as overhang is concerned. Look below under superloads and try the actual state documentation or simply give them a call at the number listed below.
Notes: Georgia mentions a legal 53 trailer with no over all length restrictions on federal interstates and “STAA” designated routes. This isn’t real clear to our staff as no overhang limits would then be governed by maximum lengths. But with no maximum length if that is the only dimension that is over routine limits then we assume any length can be permitted. BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN TO ALWAYS REFER TO YOUR ACTUAL OVERSIZE TRUCKING PERMIT FOR ANY DISCREPANCIES.

Georgia superloads.

Georgia superload information:

Ultimately Georgia superloads are classified on a base-by-case basis if they exceed the maximum weights or dimensions mentioned above in “routine permits” however there are exceptions to the rules. We suggest for in-depth research you refer to: The Georgia state DOT laws for oversize and heavy haul trucking permits.

Legal travel times for oversize and heavy haul loads.

Travel times and restrictions for heavy-haul and oversize loads:

Georgia travel times unless otherwise stated on your permit are as follows; Monday thru Saturdays from one-half hour after sunrise until one-half hour before sunset Eastern Standard Time or Eastern Daylight time depending on spring or fall.

I-285 is the boundary for Atlanta and travel within it is restricted and not permitted at all unless you are picking up or delivering within – if so travel times are not permitted from 6 AM until 9 AM and from 4 PM until 6 PM on weekdays M-F. Shipments in excess of 10 feet in width may not travel more than 55 miles per hour. Any permitted shipment that is in excess of 16 feet in width may only travel between 10 AM and and 3 PM in and around major cities. Any permitted shipment that is in excess of 12 feet in width may not travel under any circumstances if visibility is restricted to less than 600 feet or wind speed in in excess of 25 miles per hour.

Lights, safety flags and warning signs for heavy haul and oversize loads.

Required marking, safety flags, warning signs for heavy haul and oversize loads:

Any oversize or heavy-load must be clearly identified by the appropriate signs such as “OVERSIZE LOAD” OR “HEAVY-HAUL LOAD” or other variations that are specific. Signs must be mounted on the front of the truck and rear of item being transported. Sign dimensions must be no less than 6 feet wide and 12 inches in height. Sign must have a yellow background with black letters not less than 8 inches tall. Front and rear of oversize combination must be flagged with red or orange florescent flags 18 inches square.

15 years of oversize trucking online.

After over 15 years of serving the oversize and heavy haul trucking industry online we’ve pretty much seen and heard it all. We’ve grown while we continue to grow with you we’ve seen many companies throw in the towel as well. If you happen to be thinking about it while now might seem like a good time you may want to wait for a few more years. Opportunity is actually abundant in our industry for companies that can manage their profit properly. Here’s why:

During the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and even the turn of the century drivers of specialized loads didn’t share their trade with anyone else. Why would they? During these decades while the economy fluctuated drastically if you had a trade that fed your family well would you be prone to train others to do your job? Replace yourself? Of course not. We’ve got a serious shortage of drivers and this shortage is expected to grow.

Equipment isn’t cheap by any means and this is creating a big problem. A large percentage of oversize loads that are shipped these days are over-weight and this is a big problem. The days of finding a oversize or heavy haul trailer behind an barn that a handy fellow can salvage are pretty much gone. If you’re lucky enough to find one there’s little chance a lender will finance you to buy an item that is 30 years old. Even less of a chance is getting the trailer insured. So for experienced carriers to even try to get into the oversize/heavy haul trucking niche are doomed from the start. This is creating a huge problem and will continue to as the North American infrastructure continues to fail.

The bottom line is we need more oversize and heavy haul carriers on the road. Diversity is the key to success and there’s no doubt our industry needs to be much more diverse as well as resourceful to compensate for the self imposed shortages it has imposed upon itself. We need new aspiring carriers and drivers to continue on into the future.

Legal load limits.

Alberta DOT legal load limits:

Length: The overall maximum length allowed in Alberta without a permit is 23 meters (75′ 3″).
Width: The maximum width allowed is 2.6 meters (8′ 6″‘).
Height: The maximum height allowed in Alberta is 4.15 meters 13′ 7″.
Weight: 6,000 kg maximum on steer axle. Tandem axles: 17,000 kg. Tridum axels is 17,000 kilograms (37,478.6 lbs) as well. All axle weights are subject to the size of the tire.
Overhang: We have no information on allowable overhang in Alberta. Please share your knowledge with others below.
Notes:

* Super single tires require “New Generation, Wide Base” tires with a minimum tire width of 445 mm. Available by permit only. Super single tires do not apply to the steering axle.
** These weights for tridem axles apply to provincial highways only. The maximum weight for a tridem axle on a municipal road is 17,000 kg. Permits may be available to achieve heavier weights.
*** All axle weights are subject to minimum tire size. The maximum weight per tire shall not exceed the lesser of the tire manufacturer’s weight rating or the width of the tire stamped on the sidewall multiplied by 10 kg/mm.

Routine trucking permits.

Oversize and overweight trucking permits that are routinely issued by the Alberta DOT:

Length: 52 meters (170′ 8″) is about the maximum length you can get by with on a routine permit.
Width: 14′ 7″ wide depending on routing  for routine trucking permits.
Height: 5.3 meters (17′ 5″) in height is the cut off point for routine permits of course contingent on routing.
Weight: Weight is where you run into a problem. Alberta wants to know every single detail down to the size of tire you are running. Routing being a huge issue we can’t state a “routine” weight as it all depends on your axle spacings, combinations and tire sizes. Just for a safe number we’re going to say a routine permit caps out at 43,359.2 kilograms (100,000 lbs).
Overhang: 6.09 meters is about the most you can get on routine depending on routing.

Superload information.

Alberta superload information:

The maximum width normally allowed is 7.32 meters (24′) so anything over this width is a superload. We are researching information pertaining to shipping superloads in the province of Alberta Canada. If you happen to have expertise or knowledge of trucking superloads in this province please share your information for our other viewers below. Thank you.

Permitted travel times & restrictions.

Alberta DOT travel times and restrictions for oversize and overweight trucking:

The rule of 1/2 hour before sunrise until one full hour after sunset is observed in Alberta. Travel is allowed on Fridays until 3pm in the afternoon for loads that exceed 3.85 meters in width (12′ 7″) (WE WILL NEED TO DOUBLE CHECK THIS AS IT WAS LEFT AS A CORRECTION COMMENT BELOW). Travel is otherwise allowed and unrestricted on Saturdays unless stated on your permit.  Night travel is permitted for loads that are over length as long as you have 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle and are on multiple lane roads. If your shipment is no longer than of 42 meters (137′ 10″) on a single lane road you will be required to have1 front pilot car/escort vehicle and 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle. Weekend travel is permitted for loads that are over length only. If your shipment is in excess of 4.45 meters (14′ 7″) in width you will be permitted to travel only during daylight hours. If over 3.85 meters (12′ 7″) in width you may not travel on Sundays. There is not travel permitted on the following holidays: New Years day, Provincial day, Good Friday, Victoria day, Canada day, Family day, Labour day, Thanksgiving day, Remembrance day, Christmas day and on Boxing day.

Adverse weather conditions: If adverse weather conditions are reported you may not proceed with your shipment and are required to remain where ever you are. If adverse weather conditions interrupt your shipment you are required to pull over at the nearest suitable location even if it is on the side of the road unless you are over width. Over width loads must continue until they are able to completely turn off of the road and remain until adverse weather conditions stop. If your shipment is over 4.45 meters (14′ 7″) in width or 5.32 meters (17′ 5″) in height you are not permitted to travel with snow or fog visibility less than 150 meters (492′), if the road is covered with snow or ice or sleet or any other conditions that may effect the driver from proceeding with the absolute safety in mind first and foremost.

Frost laws: Alberta does have frost laws but when they are in effect changes every year based on testing with a heat flow model that measures to 30 cm below the surface. So, if you are shipping during the spring months you will need to call the number below for the exact frost law restriction dates. There are exemptions which include milk and bread trucks, farm machinery, water, fuel, fertilizer, mail and buses.

When pilot cars are required.

If your shipment is in excess of any of the following you will be required to have a pilot car escort you:

Length: If your shipment is in excess of 34 meters (111′) in overall length you are required to have 1 rear pilot car on single lane roads. For shipments in excess of 38 meters (124′ 8″) you are required to have 1 front pilot car/escort and 1 rear pilot car/escort.
Width: If your shipment is in excess of 3.85 meters (12′ 7″) wide you are required to have 1 front pilot car/escort on a single lane road or one rear pilot car/escort on multiple lane roads. For shipments over 4.45 meters (14′ 7″) wide require 1 front pilot car/escort and 1 rear pilot car/escort on single lane roads. If your shipment is in excess of 5.5 meters (18′) you are required to have 1 front and 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle on all roads.
Height: Alberta does not normally use pilot cars with high poles as they have designated routes for shipments that are over height. You can view the routes on the Alberta DOT high load corridor page located here.
Weight: As long as your shipment can maintain the minimum required speed limit you will probably not be required to have a pilot car/escort by the Alberta DOT.
Overhang: If you have overhang that is over 6.5 meters (21′ 4″) you will be required to have 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle. If your shipment overhang is in excess of 9 meters (29′ 6″) you will be required to have 1 front and 1 rear pilot car/escort vehicle.

Heavy haul trucking in the 2019 winter.

Heavy haul trucking in the 2019 winter.

Here we are again. As most of you know the over size and heavy haul trucking industry (as a whole) has enough trouble with weather in the winter months. Freight volumes are lower due to travel restrictions. A government shut-down (20%+ less freight) is newer territory for our industry and with current low winter volumes (less more) we’re all going to feel this for at least the next 90 days. If you have a hard time seeing these numbers consider, NASA, DOD, FEMA, all kinds of goods for other agencies, direct gov’t contracts as well as all of the “sub” contractors. This is a fine mess.

So, hopefully you all stashed 6 months worth of pay away so you can afford to pay your electric bill – forget about truck payments! Sound crazy? Yes it is and we agree. In a section of the transportation industry that already has a shortage all the way around we’ve got to wonder how heavy haul carriers, as well as pilot cars will be available for the 2019 big summer freight push?

It is this authors personal opinion in this day and age a “gov’t shut-down” should not be able to effect the daily operations of our nation as this just doesn’t seem like freedom, justice nor liberty. Perhaps companies in the same shoes we wear should be subsidized so we can do a little sitting on our rears as well while we wait (with 1/4 million+ dollars in equip. in the driveway) for the higher ups to get it right?

Interesting idea. Subsidizing important providers that are essentially on standby by. Of course our country needs our services to grow but without a payday nothings going to be growing anytime soon.

Moving past the political realm. As usual there’s already a shortage of freight. It looks to be a harsh winter and if it continues the way it started frost laws may be in effect well into May in the Northern states. I suppose time will tell.

If you’re operating a heavy haul trucking company and would like to share your thoughts we’d love to hear them. Please feel free to use the comment box below.

2019 Arizona State Shipping Regulations

2019 Arizona state shipping laws, regulations, rules and limitations for oversize and overweight trucking on state highways and roads.

Arizona

The great state of Arizona official seal.

Please share your expertise of Arizona state DOT trucking regulations with other visitors below.

As per the state of Arizona please read the following:

“The Arizona Department of Transportation in cooperation with state representatives, industry, the Department of Public Safety  and local law enforcement personnel work in collaboration to update and amend oversize and overweight special permit rules containing special permit requirements, restrictions and allowances for transporting oversize and overweight vehicles and loads on highways under the jurisdiction of the Department. This is a council established in statute and makes up the Over-dimensional Permit Council.

These rules detail the eligibility, application and use requirements for a variety of permits the Department currently issues to commercial motor carriers for transporting vehicles or vehicle and load combinations exceeding the maximum size or weight limitations provided by statute.

Each special permit provided by the Department under these rules is specifically authorized by statute.  The oversize and overweight special permits issued under these rules are that each permittee issued a particular class of permit is subject to the same activities, practices, requirements and restrictions applicable to that permit type. The statutes additionally provide authority for issuance, conditions, restrictions, approvals and fees.”

Routine heavy haul and oversize trucking permits in Arizona.

These maximum dimensions/weights are considered routine oversize or heavy-haul trucking permits in Arizona:

Length: 120 feet maximum or proceed to super load section.
Weight: 250,000 pounds maximum (Class C if over or see superloads). Single axle is 28,000 pounds maximum. All tandem, tridum, trunnion and quadem axle configurations depend on axle spacings and tire sizes. Gross weight maximums: 5 axles is 104,000 pounds, 6 axles is 108,000 pounds, 7 axles is 117,000 pounds. The permissible maximum weights depend on the number of tires combined with the overall distance between each of the axles. Spacings on axles are a little bit tricky in this state. The Arizona DOT permits office will consider a number or factors but it’s primarily about the bridges which could require a route survey if extreme weights are involved. If weights are excessive and trailer capabilities are even close to short of maxing out, forget it! Pavement, structural and stress testing results will govern your overall permissible capabilities.
Width: 14 feet wide maximum or file under super load.
Height: 16 tall maximum or file under super load.
Overhang:  3 feet of front or 6 feet off of the rear or any configuration that is in excess of 75 feet. They could require you to use a stretch trailer before allowing you to proceed under super load provisions.
