This effort responds to the North Dakota Legislature's direction to North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT) to collaborate with the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute (UGPTI) to study the impacts in North Dakota of harmonizing truck size and weight regulations with states in the western states transportation alliance regarding standard commercial truck envelope limits of 129,000 pounds gross vehicle combination weight or 100 foot cargo carrying length and potential implications. The study was done in cooperation of various state agencies, producers, suppliers, shippers and associations that have an interest in the trucking regulations and the infrastructure of North Dakota.
