SC&RA task force briefs Ohio DOT on four issues
24 April 2008
SC&RA's Truck Permit Policy Task Force recently met with the Ohio Department of Transportation, raising four issues for discussion: allowance of 60,000 pounds on tridems, 120,000 pounds gross allowance, resend capability of permits and specification of equipment by Ohio.
As a result of the meeting, Ohio DOT officials committed to a clear review of the weight allowance criteria and will share this data with SC&RA, allowing the organization to consult with other state engineers and independent structural engineers in order to help move Ohio forward. Ohio's DOT will consult with neighboring states that allow 60,000 pounds on tridems to review and compare analytical processes.
