Over-Dimension Permit System Replacement Project

Motor carriers will soon have access to a web-based
over-dimension permitting system.

The Commerce and Compliance Division (CCD) is excited to announce our plan to improve motor carriers’ ability to get the permits required to safely transport loads that are over legal height, width, length and/or weight. The new system will allow customers to request and obtain permits 24/7. That means better access to the permits you need when you need them!

Efforts to obtain support for a project this big has been in the works for quite some time. After much research and evaluation, the project has been included as a priority in ODOT’s Strategic Action Plan, paving the way for dramatic improvements in over dimension permitting in Oregon.

“We are pleased to be leading the work on this important project. Not only will the new system allow access to real-time permitting, but it will also allow staff to focus on more complex requests and customer support,” noted CCD Division Administrator Amy Ramsdell. “This provides us with an opportunity to reimagine our service to the industry. We look forward to their feedback as we work through the project and are ever mindful of our goal to move goods safely and effectively throughout the state.”

OD Permit Project Advisory Committee

A Project Advisory Committee (PAC) is being established to provide a forum for key stakeholders to inform decision-making regarding the implementation of the online permitting system. The group will advise ODOT on industry needs, perceptions and messaging, as well as communicate project updates to the communities they represent. The PAC will meet quarterly and will be facilitated by a public engagement consultant.

Stakeholder input is critical to the success of the project. The PAC is just one way in which the industry will be engaged. Regular communications regarding project progress will be available on this page and targeted outreach will occur in other venues as appropriate.
