Transportation Permits allow for the regulation of oversize and/or overweight truck traffic throughout the City. This is important because it allows staff to maintain circulation for conventional vehicles and to minimize the potential for damage to City infrastructure. The Municipal Code at Chapter 10, Vehicles and Traffic details the City's regulations regarding truck routes and oversize/overwieght vehicles.
