The North Dakota Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program addresses concerns from state, county, city and township transportation authorities regarding damage from heavy trucks. Explanations are provided which explain road weights during various times of the year. The program promotes voluntary truck-weight compliance, to reduce damage to public roads and highways from overweight vehicles. The goal is to provide information and explanations to attendees on how to haul the most legal weight, without violating the truck-weight laws. How you configure your truck, with proper axle spacing and tire size makes a difference.
The North Dakota Truck-Weight Education and Outreach Program is funded by North Dakota Department of Transportation. The program is being coordinated by North Dakota Technical Assistance Program (NDLTAP)/Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) – North Dakota State University (NDSU) in collaboration with North Dakota Highway Patrol.
Trucking entities that want to load to the maximum legal weight possible, scale operators, farm truck owners and operators, aggregate haulers, truck manufacturers who configure truck axles and tires, township and county authorities who influence truck route weights, any company representative who influence the purchase or alteration of new trucks, out-of-state companies that need to understand and comply with North Dakota’s legal-weight limits, and truck driving students.
