New Hampshire Adopts AASHTO Harmonization Recommendation

- Effective immediately, the minimum threshold for which an escort is required for length in New Hampshire has been raised from over 80 feet to over 90 feet. Officials made the announcement during a recent meeting between SC&RA members and staff at the Department of Transportation office in Concord, N.H. The meeting was part of a series of meetings SC&RA conducted recently in several Northeastern states.  

The New Hampshire policy change brings the state in line with AASHTO’s Harmonization Resolutions adopted in recent years in collaboration with SC&RA.

In the meeting with officials, SC&RA expressed concerns about safety and efficiency with some permit routes being provided by the state. State officials agreed to accept comments from industry on such questionable routes and revise the routing impedance values for such routes/roads. SC&RA member and Permit Policy Committee member Jim Reusch, Rushco Services, joined SC&RA V.P. Steven Todd at the meeting. For more info contact Todd.
