Welcome to West Virginia's official online hauling permit system. This site issues permits for oversize and overweight vehicles along state owned routes. This includes Interstate, Turnpike, US, WV, and County routes. Permits for local or city routes should be obtained from those respective agencies.
COMPANIES MOVING EQUIPMENT TO AND FROM STATE ROAD PROJECTS MAY ISSUE NO-COST PERMITS
If you are moving equipment to or from a state road project, you can enter the project number and (if the analysis passed) a permit can be issued at no cost. Please note that this applies to equipment only - not to materials - and that a valid project number must be entered (no purchase order numbers, contract numbers, etc.). Any inappropriate use of this feature may result in corrective measures being taken.

The width restriction from I-77 SB (at MP 100.91) meets I-64 WB (at MP 57.47) to MP 58.60 in Charleston HAS BEEN REDUCED TO 10' (was 12'). Wide loads must take Exit 58-C (Washington Street/Civic Center Exit) and follow the detour signs for the wide load restriction unless another suitable detour is specified and approved by the WVDOH Permit Office.

The Charleston rush hour travel curfew has been expanded to prohibit travel after 7:30 p.m. (for loads large enough to require escorts) due to nighttime construction in the Charleston area.
