With the increase in bridge strikes we have been seeing lately, all permit applications that involve an over height dimension of 14” 6” (fourteen feet - six inches) or higher will require a height clearance route survey certification as part of the permit application. Please include the application number when you fax (800-945-3416) the survey to our office.
