Over-dimensional/overheight Permits

An over-height, over-dimensional or overweight load (as defined within Alberta Transportation guidelines and in accordance with the Traffic Safety Act and Motor Vehicle Registration Act) through the City of Airdrie will require a permit.

All single trip over-dimensional permits for Airdrie are available online through the provincial Transportation Routing and Vehicle Information System (TRAVIS). The cost for a single trip permit is $25 (non-refundable). Please call 1.800.662.7138 for all questions and assistance.

High load moves requiring traffic signal lights to be turned MUST be scheduled two business days in advance. If less than 48 hours notice is given, the hauler is subject to a short notice scheduling fee (see the High Load Moves Scheduling Letter).

If your load requires signal light turning,  RoaData will be in contact the hauler to confirm dates/time or you can email with your requested date/time. All turning of traffic signals will be completed by City of Airdrie Staff at either 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. The fee structure is listed in the High Load Move Guidelines & Associated Fees and will be added directly to the permit fees.

To lesson the impact to traffic, no loads will be scheduled or traffic light turning on weekdays during peak traffic times.

During weekdays, peak traffic times are:

  • 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

Multi-load Truck Haul Permit

A haul permit is required for multi-load hauls to ensure the integrity of the road is suitable for the haul. In addition, multi-load hauls may require a Road Use Agreement depending on the duration of haul, number of loads, and whether the haul is done all in one period of time or split over multiple periods.

Multi-load hauls will require:

  • Legal or Civic addess you are hauling to/from
  • A pre-inspection from the Roads Department
  • A geotechnical engineer to conduct a pre-haul visual inspection report
  • Securities = Asphalt $25,000/km, Gravel $5,000/km
  • A geotechnical post haul inspection

The intent is to return the road(s)that may have been impacted to their original state prior to the beginning of a haul. Once the haul is complete the Roads department will inspect the haul route to determine the extent of repairs, if any, that will determine the release of the securities.

NOTE: Depending on the site that you are travelling to/from you may also require a developer permit or grading permit.

Please contact RoaData to request a permit:
