DOT & Arizona State Heavy Oversize Permit Information

PERMITS: Arizona oversize permits are valid for four days. Drivers have the option of purchasing permits at most Ports of Entry.

OPERATING TIME: Daylight hours, (one-half hour before sunrise to one-half hour after sunset). Loads/vehicles not over 10′ wide or 14′-6″ high or not over 10′ rear overhang are allowed continuous travel. Loads not over 16′ wide, 16′ high, 120′ long and 250,000 pounds may travel on Interstate and specified state routes at night, from 3:00 am to 12:00 noon on weekends (except on holiday weekends and in curfew areas), but this must be requested when permit is ordered and must be stated on the permit. Note that loads over 11′ wide will be required to have one escort to travel from 3 a.m. to noon on weekends, and loads 15′ high and over will need escort with height pole.

RESTRICTED TRAVEL: No OD or OW loads allowed on I-17, I-10 and SR 60 within city limits of greater Phoenix area, or I-10 or I-19 within city limits of greater Tucson area between hours of 7:00 am – 9:00 am and 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm weekdays. Local “Courtesy Permit”/route approval is required for OD travel within Phoenix and Tucson.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE.  VeriTread is not a permit service nor do we answer permit and escort requirements.  States are constantly changing their rules and regulations, so always read your permits and provision sheets carefully. Due to these changes, VeriTread can not guarantee the accuracy of the provided information.  Please use the link to the state's official DOT page to verify all oversize and over dimensional permitting information with your respective state.
