17 AAC 35.020 - Industrial use highway permits

(a) A vehicle whose length exceeds the limitations of 17 AAC 25 but whose length is not more than 90 feet, including load, or whose weight exceeds the gross vehicle weight limitations of 17 AAC 25.060 but whose gross vehicle weight is not more than 200,000 pounds, will, in the department's discretion, be issued an industrial use highway permit to operate on an industrial use highway if the length and weight do not exceed those specified by the department for the industrial use highway.
(b) Subject to (c) of this section, an overweight or oversize permit referred to in 17 AAC 25.010, and issued under 3 AAC 35, is not required for a vehicle for which an industrial use highway permit has been issued under 17 AAC 35.030.
(c) A vehicle whose gross vehicle weight or whose length exceeds the weight or length limits specified for a particular industrial use highway may not operate on that industrial use highway unless it has a valid overweight or oversize permit issued under 3 AAC 35 and the permit fee, as calculated under 17 AAC 35.050, has been paid.
(d) A vehicle used on an industrial use highway which has neither an industrial use highway permit nor an overweight or oversize permit issued under 3 AAC 35, is subject to the weight and size limitations of 17 AAC 25.010(a).
(e) Application for an industrial use highway permit for a single trip must be made at least 24 hours before the applicant intends to move the vehicle on the highway. Application for an industrial use highway permit allowing multiple movements must be made at least 14 days before the applicant intends to commence operations. A permit will not be issued until the department has reviewed the permit application. In reviewing the permit application, the department will, in its discretion, conduct extensive analyses and will, in its discretion, solicit public comment.
(f) A permit application form may be obtained at the department office designated for the specific industrial use highway, and a completed application must be submitted to the department. However, if the commissioner has delegated authority to issue industrial use highway permits to another state agency under 17 AAC 35.030(f), a permit application form may also be obtained from that state agency and the completed application must be submitted to that state agency as described in (e) of this section rather than to the department.
