For those needing to travel across a posted bridge with a truck/equipment that exceeds the allowable weight limit, you may want to consider applying for a permit that allows loads exceeding the weight limit to drive over such bridges. The link for that form is ftp://ftp.dot.state.pa.us/public/PubsForms/Forms/M-4902.pdf. This is a 4902 Permit – “Application/Permit to Exceed Posted Weight or Size Limit.” With this permit, you must adhere to the axle and load limits; do not fail or violate your permit conditions; show proof of insurance; and meet the definition of limited and unlimited trips.
Another site to explore is the Pennsylvania Posted and Bonded Roads Viewer - this site shows all posted and closed state bridges in a county.
Transportation funding continues to be a focus of PennAg. Late September, several PennAg members along with Chris Herr, Executive Vice President, visited many of the Southern Pennsylvania Representatives stressing the need for a transportation funding package and explained the increase costs to agriculture when bridges are posted.
