SC&RA Clarifies “Nondivisible Load” Interpretations

SC&RA Clarifies "Nondivisible Load" Interpretations

The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) recently received clarification from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) on the definition of “nondivisible loads.” SC&RA Clarifies "Nondivisible Load" Interpretations

The FHWA sent a formal letter in response to the SC&RA in April stating, “the word ‘or’ at the end of (ii) means that a load that meets any one or more of the three definitions shall be considered nondivisible.”

According to an article posted to the SC&RA’s website, the Federal Definition 23 CFR 658.5 – Nondivisible means any load or vehicle exceeding applicable length or weight limits which, if separated into smaller loads or vehicles, would:

(i) compromise the intended use of the vehicle, i.e., make it unable to perform the function for which it was intended:
(ii) Destroy the value of the load or vehicle, i.e., make it unusable for its intended purpose; or
(iii) Require more than 8 workhours to dismantle using appropriate equipment.

In regards to iii, this means loads can be defined as “nondivisible” if the removal of the objects will make the load unable to perform the function and/or unusable. 

SC&RA is working to send the response to all states to develop uniformity.

WCS First to Test New TN Online Permit System

WCS First to Test New TN Permit System

Tennessee’s Department of Transportation’s TOOPS online permit program went offline on 5/24, leaving customers without the ability to obtain an oversize/overweight permit for a period of up to 6 days while the state implements its new oversize load permit system, TNTRIPS. 

The state reached out to WCS Permits and its staff to test the new online permitting system, and although delays are expected, WCS’ 60 plus transportation agents are ready to assist during the transition. 

The system is not live yet, but it is expected to be no later than Wednesday, May 30. 
TN to Experience Permit Issuance Outage Until 5/30 at the Latest

The state announced the change to the public via a message posted upon logging into the online permitting system, TOOPS, although it worked with WCS so they were aware, briefed and eventually trained on the new system. At that time, they also let people know the specifics of the migration and the need to upgrade to a smarter and more efficient online permit order and tracking system. 

Anyone with a direct account with the state and access to the TOOPS system will have to wait until the new system is live on or before Wednesday, 5/30 to process and order new permits – either single trip permits or annual permits. During the migration, no permits can be submitted, purchased or viewed. 

What Can be Expected with the New TNTRIPS?

The biggest change noted with the migration to TNTRIPS is that additional documents can be attached to permit applications as needed, such as route surveys, THP Request forms and Certificates of Insurance. Also, insurance will be required within the first 30 days once the new system is live. The permit office said additionally that they hope the new system improved the overall permitting process, with extra staff on hand the first 2 weeks for help during the transition. 

It is reminded that all company information will be migrated from TOOPS to TNTRIPS, and any active single trip permits and annual permits will be migrated to TNTRIPS. Any questions or issues from customers will be handled by WCS Permits staff.

TN to Experience Permit Issuance Outage for 6 Days

WCS First to Test New TN Permit System

Tennessee’s Department of Transportation’s TOOPS online permit program will leave customers without the ability to obtain an oversize/overweight permit for up to 6 days. TN to Experience Permit Issuance Outage Until 5/30 at the Latest

The state DOT has a message posted upon logging into the online permitting system, TOOPS, which states: 

“Notice Of Extend Permit Issuance Outage Effective at the close of business on 5/24/18 through 5/30/18 TDOT will take TOOPS off-line to begin the implementation of a new permit system. You will not have access to enter permits and we will not have access to process permits. We will open for issuance of permits on 5/30/18 at the latest.”

Anyone with an account with the state and access to the TOOPS system will have to wait until the new system is live on or before Wednesday, 5/30 to process and order new permits – either single trip permits or annual permits. During the migration, no permits can be submitted, purchased or viewed. 

The downtime will allow the Tennessee Overweight & Oversize Office to migrate from the current TOOPS system to a new system, TNTRIPS. The state overweight/over-dimensional permit office released a memo noting a few things which can be done to plan for the outage and a few answers to some common questions: 

  • Plan ahead – download all permits and apply early for any permits needed
  • There are no exceptions and NO permits will be issued during this time
  • All company information will be migrated from TOOPS to TNTRIPS
  • Active single trip permits and annual permits will be migrated to TNTRIPS

What Can be Expected with the New, TNTRIPS?

The biggest change noted with the migration to TNTRIPS is that additional documents can be attached to permit applications as needed, such as route surveys, THP Request forms and Certificates of Insurance. Also, insurance will be required within the first 30 days once the new system is live. The permit office said additionally that they hope the new system improved the overall permitting process, with extra staff on hand the first 2 weeks for help during the transition.

PA Turnpike Toll Changes

PA Turnpike Toll Changes

The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission released updates via a news release regarding toll changes on the PA Turnpike effective April 29. PA Turnpike Toll Changes

Drivers traveling along the PA Turnpike’s Northeastern Extension (I-476) in Lackawanna County and on the Southern Beltway in Washington and Allegheny counties will notice changes in how tolls are collected. 

Changes will occur on Sunday,  April 29, 2018 at Clarks Summit and Keyser Avenue, and later this spring at the Findlay Connector.  These changes include:

  • A new cashless toll-collection system;
  • New toll rates reflecting a 2018 increase;
  • A new vehicle-classification system; and
  • New procedures for over-dimensional permits.

Cashless tolling affects traditional procedures for vehicles with over-dimensional permits.  The following are the new procedures for over-dimensional vehicles traveling through cashless tolling locations:

  • Permits are still requested online at www.paturnpike.com.
  • Drivers are required to carry a printed copy of the approved permit they requested online.
  • Drivers no longer stop at toll plazas to process permits and pay tolls.
  • Tolls are paid with E-ZPass or PA Turnpike TOLL BY PLATE (invoice mailed to the vehicles’ registered owner).
  • Drivers should always review the “Route & Permit Restrictions” and “Comments” sections of the permit prior to travel for special instructions and messages, including lane assignments when applicable.

These new procedures are in effect at the following cashless tolling locations:

  • Delaware River Bridge (I-276, Exit 359)
  • Beaver Valley Expressway (I-376, all toll plazas)
  • Clarks Summit (I-476, Exit 130) *Effective April 29, 2018
  • Keyser Avenue (I-476, Exit 121) *Effective April 29, 2018
  • Findlay Connector (PA Turnpike 576) *Scheduled spring 2018

Drivers are still required to follow both traditional and new procedures when a trip includes travel on both the ticket system and through cashless tolling locations.  Traditional procedures require drivers to apply for permits online, stop at toll plazas to process permits and do not allow for payment of tolls with E-ZPass.

If You Have Any Questions

For general information about cashless tolling, visit www.nocashzone.com.  For additional information about over-dimensional permit procedures at cashless tolling locations, call the PA Turnpike Customer Assistance Center at 800-331-3414.

CA Weekly Short-Term Restrictions Can be Displayed Electronically

CA Weekly Short-Term Restrictions Can be Displayed Electronically

The California DOT (Caltrans) released a memorandum on Monday, April 16 stating California Annual Permit holders can now legally display the weekly short term restrictions on an electronic device. CA Weekly Short-Term Restrictions Can be Displayed Electronically

That means, any driver in the state operating under an Annual Transportation Permit can carry and display the Weekly Short-term Restrictions Update for Annual Permit Holders (Weekly Restrictions) in either printed or electronic form. Either version must be legible and contain no alterations. 

Previously, the state of California required these restrictions to be printed each week as part of their legal CA Annual Permit.  But now, drivers can display the electronic document to any commercial vehicle law enforcement on an acceptable electronic device, including a laptop, tablet or smartphone. The California Highway Patrol will provide requirements for acceptable electronic devices, according to Caltrans. 

This marks a move in the direction of technology as drivers are utilizing those devices while on the road more and more, and moving away from paperwork, especially with the recent ELD Mandate enforcement, although this only applies to weekly restrictions. All other permit accompaniments must be printed and in the driver’s immediate possession.  

If You Have Any Questions

You can contact the Caltrans Transportation Permits office at (916) 322-1297, or view the Electronic Carry and Display: Annual Permit – Weekly Short-term Restrictions

Minnesota: Seasonal Load Limit Notification

Minnesota Seasonal Load Limit Notification

The Minnesota Department of Transportation released the ending date for Winter load increases and the starting date for Spring load restrictions in the North-Central and North frost zones. 

Wednesday, March 21, 2018 at 12:01 a.m. is the ending date for Winter load increases, as well as the starting date for Spring load restrictions in the North-Central frost zone. 

Thursday, March 22 at 12:01 a.m. is the start date for Spring load restrictions in the North frost zone, while Winter load increases have ended and Spring load restrictions have begun in all other frost zones.

Weight restricted routes are outlined on the MnDOT seasonal load limit website. 

Overweight Permits

Oversize load permits for over 80,000-pounds will continue and new permits will be issued if axle and group weights are legal. 

  • Up to full-summer overweight permits can be issued as well during the Spring load restriction period only on interstate through movements. 
  • Middle-range overweight permits become available within each frost zone when Spring load restrictions are lifted.
  • Full-summer overweight permits become available within each frost zone starting two to three weeks after Spring load restrictions are lifted.
