Travel on roads with permanent weight restrictions is only permitted at the posted limit, unless a letter of permission is granted from the NWMS permit office. Tri steer permits are available by special permission only and can be obtained by calling the NWMS permit office. 16 and 24 wheel trailers must also obtain a wheeler permit for all loads.
Steer axle weight will be a part of GVW for any penalty purposes and front steer annual permits will be up for renewal starting on September 3rd.
