Types of Permits
The trip permit provides for one movement of one vehicle and load (s) over one specific route within a 14-day period. Special provisions such as signage, escorts, etc. will be specified in the permit.
2. Trip & Return
The Trip and Return permit provides for one movement of a specific vehicle and load(s) over the same specified route within a 14-day period. Special provisions required such as signage, escorts, etc. will be specified in the permit.
The Annual permit allows an unspecified number of trips within a calendar year. This permit shall be issued for a specific vehicle and cannot be used for another vehicle. If more than one type of load is to be transported in combination with the specified vehicle they must be listed separately on form SHP-1L. Each type of load must be listed and show type, manufacturer or make, model number, load dimensions, vehicle and load dimensions, net load, total gross weight, and all axle loads for that vehicle and load combination. SHP-1L forms will be kept on file and may be revised during the year subject to a revision charge. If all weights (axle and gross) are legal, the “axle loads” portion of the permit form need not be completed. No Annual permit will be issued for any vehicle and load that exceeds 120,000 pounds. If a vehicle and load is overweight and/or exceeds 12’-0” in width, 13’-6” in height or is 20’-0” over length an SHP-1R “coupon” must be used for each movement. These SHP-1R coupons must be obtained from the Franklin County Engineer’s Office prior to movement. To use an SHP-1R coupon the permit holder must inform the Franklin County Engineer of the specific route requested and beginning date of movement. If this route is acceptable, an authorization code will be given to the permit holder to affix to the SHP-1R coupon. SHP-1R “Coupons” are valid for a five (5) day period beginning on the date shown on the coupon and are valid for one move only within the 5 day period. No extensions will be given for any reason. Any holder of an Annual permit who violates any provision of the permit shall be subject to having the Annual permit revoked and may be required to obtain an individual trip permit for each movement of the vehicle and load.
