Gov. Gordon Expedites the Transportation of Emergency Supplies
Governor Mark Gordon has recently signed an Executive Order expediting the commercial transportation of COVID-19-related supplies to communities in Wyoming and throughout the country.
Executive Order (EO) 2020-3 extends hours of service restrictions and waives size and weight permit fees if a commercial vehicle is transporting COVID-19 supplies. This applies to drivers transporting essential emergency relief supplies to areas affected by COVID-19.
Governor Gordon stated, “It’s absolutely essential that we as a state are doing all we can to make sure these critical supplies aren’t delayed in transport to areas that need them. We need to get these items where they need to go as quickly as possible.”
Commercial vehicles are still required to get a permit if they are oversize and/or overweight, but the fee will be waived. All safety measures will continue to be followed for non-divisible and divisible loads.
The EO is in line with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s emergency declaration.
Commercial carriers can obtain information on these permits at the appropriate Wyoming Highway Patrol (WHP) ports of entry. The ports can also fax or email those forms.
