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.
The state of West Virginia has directed most non-essential staff to telework in all instances possible, therefore all oversize/overweight permits will be issued remotely. This should not cause any delays in the usual processing times, however there will be delays for calls. Customers are asked to contact the permit technician via email at the following addresses.
Any calls should be directed to (304) 558-9547.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation during these times.
Attention: Before applying for any permits, please view the restriction information located at the following links: http://wv511.org Select LIST VIEWS, then PLANNED EVENTS for information on interstate and US routes. For specific WVDOH district information go to http://transportation.wv.gov/highways/districts/Pages/default.aspx Then select corresponding district, then choose district work zones.
