Effective Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2016, there will be a change in Ohio’s one-mile permit access rule, which will grant specialized carriers access to off permit routes for food, fuel, rest, repair, etc.
The permittee is authorized to exit the permitted route at any State Highway intersection for food, fuel, rest or repair provided that the hauler doesn’t travel more than 5,280 feet (1 mile) from the interchange (measure as a lane mile from the junction of the off ramp), and doesn’t cross under (if permitted height exceeds 13’6″) or over any structure which is 10′ wide or greater.
Upon re-entering the permitted route, the permittee must abide by the same restrictions as when exiting the permitted route. By traveling more than 5,280 feet (1 mile) or crossing over or under (if permitted height exceeds 13’6″) any structure the permittee will be considered off route.
