Please note that the Uniform Truck Permit available from the ND Association of Oil and Gas Producing Counties is only valid on non-restricted roads and must have a validation number. Any road that is posted as an 8-ton per axle or less or those shown as 80,000-pound (40-ton) maximum load restriction will need an over-sized permit from Ward County Highway Department.
