Application Review and Site Inspection
1. After receiving the application, the County Engineer will review the form for completeness. The County Engineer or his authorized representative will inspect the proposed route, examining roadway and structure conditions.
2. Review time will be governed by the amount of weight and size of the vehicles or loads to be moved together with the length of the proposed route and the impact the move will have on the highway. Permits and Coupons will be processed as soon as possible in the order they are received. While routine requests can normally be handled in less than an hour, permittees should try to schedule their moves to allow at least four normal working hours of processing time. When characteristics of a movement require field or structure analysis a minimum of two (2) working days should be allowed for processing the application. All applications should be made as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary delays.
3. If, after reviewing the application and inspecting the proposed route, the County Engineer determines that the proposed move would materially affect the operation or maintenance of the highway, a conference may be scheduled at the applicant’s request to discuss possible revisions to the proposed route and/or reductions in size and weight of the load. If application or route condition is not suitable for permit issuance, the permit will be denied for that designated route and the applicant will be so informed.
