MHISC has been working with officials from the SC Department of Transportation to improve rules in the industry.
The maximum length for annual permits has been changed from 100 feet to 110 feet. This is measured from the front bumper to the back of the load.
According to DOT officials, this change is effective immediately but it may take some time for the website to reflect the update because a software change is required.
However, DOT personnel in the Oversize-Overweight Office have been made aware of the policy change.
It should be noted that, according to DOT officials, this new length includes no “divisible load” restrictions.
