Overweight, Oversized & Wide Load Super Loads
Loads over 200,000 lbs require a BOL showing the load weight. Super loads are generally considered to be anything over 17' wide; 17'6" high; 125,000 lbs gross weight. The state considers any load requiring bridge analysis and special routing to be a super load. Diagrams of axle spacings and weights are required along with the routes to be traveled. Up to 25% over legal will be routine issue.

Applications are usually processed within the day, but if it is an extremely large or heavy load it might take up to 48 hours.
