Specialized Overweight Permits

Hidalgo County allows shippers to securely order specialized overweight permits online. The permits cover travel over the Hidalgo County roads listed below for vehicles weighing no more than the Mexican Legal Weight Limit or 125,000 lbs. For a more detailed explanation, see below.

NOTICE: Effective November 13, 2017, the fee to obtain a Hidalgo County Specialized Overweight Permit will be $200.

The Authority has determined that it is necessary to raise the permit fee to $200 to maintain the network of roadways that support the Overweight/Oversized Corridor. The current network of roads is designed for a Tractor and Trailer combination that does not exceed 80,000 pounds in gross vehicle weight. The overweight permit allows for a Tractor and Trailer combination up to 125,000 pounds in gross vehicle weight. These overweight vehicles are accelerating wear and tear on the roadway, which will require a more frequent maintenance cycle. 85% of the overweight permit fee is dedicated to maintenance of the corridor. The Authority strives to maintain safe and efficient movement of overweight commodities across the roadway network.
