Review: Oversize/Overweight Permits
Obtain a permit in any of three ways:
Escort requirements have changed
Governor Walz signed into law changes to escort requirements for oversize vehicles.
The changes require a rear escort on a multilane divided roadway. One front and rear escort is required on an undivided roadway when exceeding 15 feet at the bottom of the load, or 16 feet at the top of the load.
Road construction materials permits
