Oversize load travel restrictions and department of transportation (DOT) oversize/overweight permit office closures are available for truck drivers and dispatchers to plan ahead for some upcoming holidays in November.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6. Every DOT oversize permit office is open, and most states post no travel restrictions with the exception of the New York City permit office.
Veteran’s Day is observed on Monday, November 12 and a majority of state permit offices are closed, and several have oversize travel restrictions including no oversize travel allowed on Nov. 12.
Thanksgiving Day is observed on Thursday, November 22. All state permit offices are closed with a majority also closed on Friday, November 23. Most states have travel restrictions in place for the holiday, with some starting as early as Tuesday, November 20.
Some states also note a specific height, width and length restriction for Thanksgiving.
WCS contacts each state to obtain the most accurate holiday closure information, although some states post updates while other states don’t publish or give out oversize travel restrictions until closer to the holiday. Updates will be posted as each state makes them available so it’s important to check back in for updates.
WCS Permits puts together a list of oversize load travel restrictions and oversize permit office closures by state for every major holiday.
