Excess Maintenance Agreement Resources
An Excess Maintenance Agreement (EMA) is a signed agreement between the hauler (User) and PennDOT. The EMA must be signed before the hauler receives a permit to haul on a posted roadway. The agreement ensures that the hauler completes any maintenance beyond the normal routine work on the road. If the hauler does not complete the required maintenance, their permit will be suspended
Section 5 of Publication 23, Chapter 15 of the Maintenance Manual details the permitting requirements.
