La. Admin. Code tit. 73, § I-1701 - Off-Road Equipment on State-Maintained Highways

Current through Register Vol. 48, No. 3, March 20, 2022

A. It will be the policy of the department to follow the ensuing requirements governing the permitting of off-road equipment on the state-maintained highway system.
B. The department will generally authorize a permit for the use of off-road equipment on the state maintained highway system provided it conforms to the provisions herein. Application for an off-road equipment permit and its authorization will be through the truck permit office of the department.
C. Off-road equipment shall be considered as any self-propelled or combination of vehicles adaptable to the highway environment which is not intended for normal operation on the highway due to its weight, size, and/or configuration. This equipment will also be classified as either non-critical or critical. Noncritical off-road equipment is not expected to produce excessive stresses in common highway bridges when operated. Critical off-road equipment, however, can produce stresses in excess of the capacity of common highway bridges if its permit requirements are not carefully met.
