Temporary increased truck weight limit to end as of Sunday, July 12

Eased limit for commercial loads have been in place since early April

PHOENIX – A temporary higher weight limit for certain commercial trucks during the current public health situation will expire as of Sunday, July 12, based on guidance from the U.S. Department of Transportation. 

In response to a national emergency declaration, and to align with the temporary increase in truck weights by neighboring states, the Arizona Department of Transportation in early April raised the gross weight limit for commercial vehicles to 90,000 pounds without the need for an overweight permit, up from the normal 80,000 pounds.

The temporary higher weight limit applied to commercial trucks carrying critical supplies and goods.
