WCS has posted DOT office closure & travel restrictions for the upcoming holidays.

Drivers and companies should always check holiday restrictions on all state blankets and annual permits.

WCS coordinated the permits and transportation of a 16-inch, 120 mm naval gun from Nevada to Fort Cronkhite near San Francisco early this month.

The gun barrel, 68-feet long and 120-tons, with loaded dimensions of 14-feet high, 16-feet wide and 155-feet long was once used during World War II.

WCS worked closely with Bigge Crane & Rigging and several agencies such as Caltrans to move the barrel on a custom, 10-axel transport trailer.

Moved from Nevada, the gun is being displayed outside Batter Townsley, which was a US harbor defense site during WWII and in preserving the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

 

In 2011, WCS coordinated all permits and road closures for the heaviest loads on record in California. The third of four total loads, again hauling an old steamed generator, will soon move from San Onofre to Utah.  

While the load weighs approximately 1.6 million ponds and is 16’9 tall, 20-feet wide and 400-feet long, it is no longer the heaviest load to travel in California.

In March of this year, WCS coordinated all permits, road closures and traffic and pedestrian control for the movement of “The Rock,” a 340-ton boulder transported from Riverside County to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where it is now part of Michael Heizer’s ‘Levitated Mass’ exhibit.

The old steamed generator is expected to move in November of this year, and will travel at low speeds on surface streets during the night.

WCS Permits has published Labor Day (Monday, 9/3) travel restrictions and DOT office closures by state.

Please reference information here for restrictions on travel times and specifics on over-dimensional loads or those which require pilot cars.

Keep in mind closings and travel restrictions are subject to change without notice.

It was a Guinness World Record-breaking weekend at the X Games.

Rally car driver Tanner Foust and stuntman Greg Tracy achieved the impossible as they conquered the Hot Wheels Loop, six stories high, at 7Gs and 53-mph.

WCS worked on the Hot Wheels Loop before the X Games weekend, however.

In order for the loop to make it to the games and the pre games test site, it needed to be transported. WCS worked with the loop’s carrier to route and permit several loads carrying the loop. The loads ranged in sizes up to 17-feet wide.

 

Sunday marked the opening day of Michael Heizer’s “Levitated Mass” exhibit at LACMA, and what seemed to be the end of the road for some.

While the exhibit will continue to attract tourists and media from all over, the journey WCS Permits, its sister company, Right of Way Inc., and several other companies and government agencies embarked on to see this project through came to a halt.

For over two years, permits were obtained, routes and streets were surveyed, road closures were negotiated and the move of the 340-ton buy naltrexone online boulder, which had loaded dimensions of 21-feet, 10-inches tall, 30-feet, 6-inches wide, and 275-feet long was made possible.

WCS and Right of Way worked closely with the carrier, Emmert International obtaining various permits so the load could safely begin and end its 105-mile, 11-night journey from Riverside County to LACMA.

The load only traveled at night at slow speeds of 7 mph or less.

Opening Day at the LACMA exhibit marked new beginnings, but a successfully completed project as well.

This weekend racing records will be attempted at the X Games in Los Angeles.

But before the six-story Hot Wheels double vertical loop could test driver’s talents, the loop needed to be safely transported to the games.

WCS permitted and routed several loads ranging in size up to 17-feet wide to transport the loop to the X Games generic revia experience.

According to ESPN, drivers will accelerate to 52 mph, and then enter the six-story loop attempting to hit seven times normal gravity as they drive through the loop.
