Multiple jurisdictions within Minnesota process oversize/overweight (OSOW) permits for the movement of freight on state roadways; county roads; and municipal and township streets. Movement of freight has increased in recent years to help support economic trends and construction needs. These moves often require haulers to offload from state roadways onto the county or municipal and township roadways for final delivery; causing pinch points (i.e.; construction; vertical clearance issues; etc.) which may negatively impact the forecast life cycles of both roads and bridges. With haulers moving across roadway authorities; there is a desire to develop a unified process to support OSOW permits. This report outlines the feasibility of implementing an OSOW unified permitting process (UPP); to be used by multiple roadway authorities; allowing a "one-stop-shop" for haulers and permitting agencies.
