    • Abstract:
      This project is the first phase in the development of an integrated and automated system for permitting oversized and/or overweight commercial vehicles. The system enables permit applicants to obtain automated route information and permits for oversize and overweight loads throughout the highway system. The oversize/overweight permitting system provides the means for scheduling and timing of travel for these vehicles over the State’s routes, with special consideration of routes through Birmingham. The permitting system includes an automated routing system to insure safe travel of vehicles, including consideration of the vehicles dimensions in relation to the highway feature physical clearances, and the structural stress affects of the vehicle axle weight configuration on the capacity of bridges to carry load without damage. The digital roadway network model provides a fast, reliable determination of all conditions and events along the vehicle trip path. The developed system also improves the efficiency of the process by automating the bridge analysis process and by checking all bridge clearance restrictions for overweight and oversize vehicles. Construction zone work information will be provided to alleviate congestion on the routes of Alabama, with special benefits to the Birmingham metropolitan area.
