PennDOT has not changed its permit process. Permits may be obtained for emergency vehicles with a gross vehicular weight in excess of the bridge posting limits. These permits should be obtained for posted bridges within your normal response area as well as response areas your company assists. Completed M-4902 application forms (see link below) should be sent to the applicable contact person from the PennDOT District Bridge Emergency Services Contact List (see link below). No fee is charged to emergency services for the permits. Approval of each permit is conditional, based upon bridge analysis.
