Bismarck, N.D. – The North Dakota Highway Patrol is launching a new automated routing and permit system next month. This $2.5 million state-of-the-art online system will automatically calculate overweight and oversized vehicle routes and fees, saving valuable travel time for the motor carrier industry and providing safer routes.
Last year, the NDHP issued more than 348,000 permits for vehicle and load movements, an increase of 32 percent since 2011. The new system will provide fast and efficient issuance of permits.
The NDHP is conducting training for the new system and invites the motor carrier industry to attend. Training will be June 3-7 at various times and locations around the state. For a complete list, visit www.nd.gov/ndhp or call 328-5580. Space is limited and participants should RSVP by May 29.
