Oversized/Overweight Load Permits are issued only for roads maintained by the County Department of Public Works. Oversized/Overweight Load Permits are required if over 65 feet long, over 80,000 lbs gross weight, over 14 feet high, or over 8' 6" wide.
Applicants are responsible for verifying that the proposed roads are in the County Maintained Road System (CMRS). After you have verified the road is in the CMRS you should check for Current Road Closures, bridge restrictions (Table) and road restrictions (Valley, Desert, and Mountain).
Applicants planning travel through the desert areas may also find useful information regarding National Trails Highway.
Some desert roads are within the Mojave Preserve and are maintained by the National Park Service. Please see the information below for the map, list of roads within the Preserve, and contact information.
