Effective Jan. 3, 2021, the PA Turnpike Commission implemented a Special Hauling Permit Fee for overweight/overdimensional vehicles across the system. Operators of these vehicles must apply for a Special Hauling Permit and pay a $37 flat fee along with an additional 24 cent-per-ton-mile fee on all weight in excess of 80,000 pounds. Appropriate tolls will be assessed at time of travel.
Important to note - requirements for when a Special Hauling Permit is needed remain the same. For example, with weight restrictions, a permit is not required until the weight exceeds 100,000 pounds, but if it does, the per-ton-mile fee will be based on all weight in excess of 80,000 pounds.
