Dimension and Weight limits

As per Traffic Bylaw No. 7200, any trucks and equipment that exceed the following dimensions, and wish to travel through the City of Saskatoon, require an Excess Dimension Permit from the City of Saskatoon prior to travel.

Vehicles with a gross vehicle weight in excess of 8,000kgs or 17,600lbs, will require a review of the individual axel weights(loads) and distribution of axel groupings – as per dimension and weight parameters outlined within Schedule No. 7

Over-Dimensioned vehicles and equipment 

Excess Dimension Permits are required to travel within city limits for Non-divisible loads - any load or vehicle that exceeds applicable weights and/or dimensional limits which cannot be divided into smaller loads or vehicles, without causing damage to the load

Excess Dimension Permits will not be issued for divisible loads. Please refer to Section 4 of the Traffic Bylaw Special Permits Policy

For any loads greater than 5.2 meters (17 feet) in height, please contact our office by emailing us at Truck.Permits@saskatoon.ca

For Unlicensed Construction and/or Farm equipment, please refer to Section 3.5 of the Traffic Bylaw Special Permits Policy

Over-Weight vehicles and equipment 

An Excess Load Permit is required when a vehicle or unlicensed piece of equipment exceeds maximum gross vehicle weights, as outlined in Schedule No. 7 of the Traffic Bylaw No. 7200.

For all excess weight loads - axel spreads, spacings and weights must be checked by our bridge engineers to determine the route required. Bridges throughout the City are limited on the individual load capacity that they can sustain. To avoid fines and/or damage to City infrastructure, apply for an excess load permit and have your load checked before proceeding with your intended move/delivery.
