Overdimensional Vehicle Policy

The Overdimensional Vehicle Policy establishes the weight, width, length and height restrictions for vehicles operating on the City's streets.

Operators who wish to apply for an exception to the rules may submit an application to the City of Fargo Engineering Department. If the operator receives approval and pays the applicable fees, the operator will receive a special written permit authorizing the operation of vehicles that exceed the limits set forth in the Overdimensional Vehicle Policy Manual. To access the permit form, use the Permits link in the right margin of this page.
