    When do I need a Special Hauling Permit?

    Sections 5577.04 and 5577.05 of the Ohio Revised Code specifies the maximum size and weight allowable that does NOT require an Ohio Special Hauling Permit. If you exceed any of those values AND you desire to travel on an Ohio State highway or a US highway or an Interstate highway in Ohio, you will need a Special Hauling Permit for the Ohio Department of Transportation. If you desire to travel on county routes, township routes, or city streets, contact those corresponding agencies.  The Montgomery County Engineer’s Office issues for county routes only.


    Special Hauling Permit Application:

    Special Hauling Permits give the County the opportunity to review overweight and oversized loads moving through Montgomery County. This ensures safe equipment and proper routing along the most appropriate roads in an effort to minimize potential damage to the roadway system.
