Oklahoma Alters Over-Height Permit Requirements
(June 5, 2019)
- The State of Oklahoma has passed a bill (SB-690) changing its over-height permit requirements. Effective immediately, no vehicle, with or without load, shall exceed a height of thirteen and one-half (13 ½) feet on any county road, or fourteen (14) feet on any turnpike, interstate, U.S. or state highway, unless a greater height is authorized by a special permit issued by the Commissioner of Public Safety or an authorized representative of the Commissioner in consultation with the Department of Transportation specifying the highways to be used, consistent with public convenience and safety.
