Use of "Bid Route" feature in TxPROS to Route Over-Height Loads Safely in Disaster Areas

Texas Governor Greg Abbott declared a disaster for 30 Texas counties because of Hurricane Harvey. The Texas Department of Motor Vehicles has temporarily suspended size and weight restrictions and oversize/overweight permitting requirements for vehicles and loads associated with activities to respond to the disaster. See related Notice at www.txdmv.gov/motor-carriers

If your load is over-height, you may use the “Bid Route” feature in the Texas Permitting and Routing Optimization System (TxPROS) at https://txpros.txdmv.gov  to route loads safely. Enter your height only and leave all other fields blank to use this feature during the Hurricane emergency. For information on other restrictions go here: http://www.txdmv.gov/motorcarriers/permit-restrictions

Motor Carriers are responsible and liable for safe routing and for obtaining current restrictions and information concerning hazardous weather-related road conditions prior to movement.
