California issues new tridems policy

17 April 2008

A policy change in California allowing up to 60,000 pounds of bonus weight on a qualifying tridem axle group is being heralded by the heavy haul sector. The policy change is an encouraging sign that other western states will soon agree to the same policy.

For several years, SC & RA has been working with the states of California, Nevada and Arizona, requesting that they increase the allowable weight loads on tridem axles to 60,000 pounds for routine permit issuance. California was the first state to change policy on this important industry concern. See a full explanation of the policy change on page 51.
