The Wisconsin Permit Office is responsible for issuing over 70,000 oversize/overweight permits annually, traveling over roughly 12,000 miles of state highways. With increasing permit volumes, larger load sizes, and advanced technology, the state wanted a server-based, configurable solution with automated features to accelerate permitting, save time and costs, and improve routing analysis and restriction management. Therefore, they sought an intelligent digital solution built on the latest technology.
They selected SUPERLOAD to integrate state roads and automatically alert users to changes in permitted routes, saving significant costs by preventing accidents on barricaded or flooded highways. Using SUPERLOAD, the permitting office can now update and verify road and bridge information within hours instead of three weeks, and process permit renewals within three hours per month compared to approximately 40 hours. By streamlining the permit review processes, the integrated digital solution increases efficiencies and informs data-driven highway maintenance and operation decisions by ensuring safe oversize / overweight loads.
