Local Counties and Cities Information

Local County and City partners, under the requirements of HB 2521 (vehicle size, weight and load), which is listed as Laws 2018, Chapter 242, before any overweight or overdimensional ordinances are adopted by a local authority, they are required to submit those ordinances to the Department. The Department then is required to submit the ordinance to the Overdimensional Permit Council established by A.R.S. 28-1150 for review, and the Council will have 90 days after the Department’s receipt of the ordinance to determine if it complies with existing statutory requirements that all local ordinances are “substantially identical” to rules adopted by ADOT for overweight and overdimensional vehicles. Existing statute also requires any local authority to submit their full measure of overweight and overdimensional rules and ordinances in an electronic format. If you have not already done so, please send any new ordinances for the Council’s review”.  To have your documents and links added to the ADOT webpage, please email mgarrison@azdot.gov.
