The Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways is authorized by the Illinois Size and Weight Law (625ILCS 5/Ch. 15) to issue special permits. These permits allow the operation of vehicle or loads that exceed the legal maximum dimensions and weights. The Haul Permits are valid only for those highways under the jurisdiction of the Cook County Department of Transportation and Highways. (See Cook County Highway Jurisdiction Map)
We request that you apply few days ahead of your scheduled move. All oversize and overweight vehicles needing engineer approval must allow seven days from the submittal for an additional structural engineer review and response.
