Overdimensional Vehicle Policy
The Overdimensional Vehicle Policy establishes the weight, width, length and height restrictions for vehicles operating on the City's streets.
Operators who wish to apply for an exception to the rules may submit an application to the City of Fargo Engineering Department. If the operator receives approval and pays the applicable fees, the operator will receive a special written permit authorizing the operation of vehicles that exceed the limits set forth in the Overdimensional Vehicle Policy Manual. Traditional PDF permits and the online permitting system can both be accessed via the Resources section on the right side of this page.
2017 Policy Revision
The City revised its Overdimensional Vehicle Policy in the spring of 2017. The current policy can be accessed via the Resources section on the right side of this page. To obtain an overdimensional vehicle permit, as well as address any questions regarding the City's policy, please email.
Online Permitting Now Available
In addition to the traditional PDF permit form for single trip trailer loads, applicants can now fill out and submit permits online. After creating an account, the new online permitting system allows users to save truck and trailer combinations, copy permits and more.
The online permitting link as well as a user guide can be accessed via the Resources section on the right side of this page. At this time the online permitting system cannot be used for monthly permits, yearly permits, or snow permits. For those movements please continue to use the PDF permit form, which can be emailed to: Overdimensional Vehicle Permits
