Overdimensional (Oversized) Vehicle Permits


Permit Application Form
Apply for an Overweight/Overdimensional Vehicle (Oversized Load) Permit.

A permit is required from the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo Engineering Department in order to move an overweight or overdimensional vehicle (often referred to as an oversized load) across a bridge under Municipal authority.

For an overload vehicle to be provided a permit to cross the bridge, a load-rating analysis and report will be required. This load-rating analysis will need to be completed in accordance with Section 14 (Evaluation) of CSA S6-06, the Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code, and be stamped by a Professional Engineer experienced in load ratings and registered in the Province of Alberta, who confirms the bridge has adequate capacity to support the vehicle. This report shall include description of vehicle, rating procedure and assumptions, and evaluation results, summarizing critical locations and the live load capacity factor.

You can download the permit application form above. The most recent bridge inspection forms and load-rating charts for each municipal bridge are available below. The load-rating charts indicate whether the bridge has more or less load capacity than design or rated for that bridge.

The Application Process

Complete the application, attach the overweight/overdimension permit received from Alberta Transportation, and attach the engineering assessment completed by a qualified bridge inspector.

Email all completed permit applications and attachments to: (Attention: Transportation and Infrastructure Planning Branch)

Please refer to the Alberta Transportation Bridge Load Evaluation Manual for current bridge load evaluation practice.
