The Traffic Engineering Division is responsible for the issuance of hauling permits for oversized loads that will be traveling on Henrico County maintained roads. A Certificate of Liability Insurance made out to the County of Henrico must be provided before your permit can be issued. Our address is shown below. Allow 48 hours to obtain a hauling permit. The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) handles oversized loads traveling on State maintained roads within Henrico County.
Single Trip Hauling Permits
Henrico County will issue a hauling permit for a single trip oversized load. However, if the trip is going to travel over state routes and will require a DMV Hauling Permit, the applicant can obtain the County Hauling Permit from DMV at the same time the DMV Hauling Permit is issued. This is a convenience that was set up to speed up the process. The fee is $5 per permit, whether issued by the County or DMV.
Superload trips that will be driven on County maintained roads will need a hauling permit issued by Henrico County. County hauling permits are to be faxed to 804-501-7470. The fee is $5 per permit.
