Over-dimensional Vehicle Policy

The Over-dimensional 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, he or she will receive a special written permit authorizing the operation of vehicles that exceed the limits set forth in the Over-dimensional Vehicle Policy Manual.

Trucks and Construction zones

The Fargo Police Department and Public Works Departments cooperate in the monitoring of truck weight and construction zones. City code places limitations on truck weight by season and also sets the requirements for traffic flow in construction zones.

Contact the City's Truck Regulatory Officer to file a complaint about overweight trucks or construction zone traffic violations.
