Basically, for the first City, the Federal Truck Routes (HPMS), City
Truck Routes via ordinance were mapped.  That map was shared with the
City, and comments were made that indicating that was not the route the
Port of Entry used for overheight/overlength trucks (over weight loads
were not brought up at that time).  The attached maps show the
simplified End Result of this process.
The first map exercise was kind of a wake up call and we are currently
working with one City to come up with an internal movement truck route
(without the use of signage). (The goal would be to map other features
such as on bike routes, school crossing zones etc. against truck
The Federal Truck Routes in Wyoming seem to be directed at thru truck
movements, but some send the trucks through a Central Business District.
 (I wonder if that will change in light of the proposed emphasis on
Some over weight loads and (most over width loads) are handled at the
Port of Entry, but if they are over a certain threshold, then the WYDOT
Bridge team runs an analysis to see if the bridge structures can handle
the weight (or width), on an individual load by load basis.  We have a
lot of really large industrial, wind energy, or mining loads that have
very different sizes.    
I have attached the Truck Route Maps that we have up to date.  Notice
that they are all 'Draft' maps at this time.  The maps were designed so
they could be printed on legal sized paper in black and white, based on
the type of printer and paper that is available at the Port of Entries. 

The Casper map has a 'Windmill load Curfew'; the Laramie map notes a
City permit is needed, and there is a restriction on long windmill loads
on one road; Gillette has a much higher percentage of trucks using the
county and city systems as compared to the interstate, and the town
developed their own truck route; Luman road is a BLM road in Sublette
county where a lot of methane drilling is taking place, and since the
drivers were using GPS and going to the 'wrong' Luman road, and getting
stuck, and tearing up a county road, I was asked to help, the idea of
'signage' for truck routes is not popular, whereas a map can be fairly
easily generated.  The Cheyenne map uses a number of different truck
symbols to mark the appropriate route, as noted for the Cheyenne area. 

A Port Locations map is also attached.  
Though not included in the attachments.....I am also working with a
Port supervisor to replace an old Wyoming Primary/Secondary/Interstate
systems map for use in calculating the mileage, and for following Title
(Title 23 United States Code ยง 141. Enforcement of requirements (a)
Each State shall certify to the Secretary before January 1 of each year
that it is enforcing all State laws respecting maximum vehicle size and
weights permitted on the Federal-aid primary system,
the Federal-aid urban system, and the Federal-aid secondary
system, including the Interstate System in accordance with section
127 of this title.)    So does anyone think it would be Possible to get
this portion of code changed in the new Highway Bill???????
This presents a bit of a sticking point-   Most if not all DOT/FHWA
programs use the Functional Classification system, making the
Primary/Secondary system map all but obsolete for programs excluding the
commercial freight system for size and weight, however, I was thrilled
to find that our awesome mapper had created two 'cross-over' maps that
show both the Primary/Secondary/Interstate with the Functional
Classification system (not attached)   
Thanks for the opportunity to talk about one of my favorite subjects!

Can you please send me a PDF example of one of your truck route maps
and anything you might have that describes how the route is assigned and
if there are any special considerations made on infrastructure
requirement or standards for truck routes? I would appreciate it very

Though Wyoming does not have sea ports, our Port of Entry officers deal
with over-height, over-width, over length-vehicles directly, but the
overweight vehicle permit requests go through our Bridge department.  

I only sent this on to you, because this may or may not be of interest
to you.  Our Planning section has developed a few truck route maps, but
they do not cover overweight vehicles.

I am trying to identify the various working models for a port area
truck corridor program.   These programs recognize the unique need for

overweight cargo drays in the vicinity of ports and use ideas such as
designation and permits to manage this activity.   The programs I have

identified to date are Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, CA, and
WA.   These all follow a similar model so I am hoping this post will
lead to 
other kinds of working models.
Thank you very much!
