The Office of the Ford County Clerk shall be responsible for permitting oversize loads on right of way of roads within Ford County. If any of the route is on State or Federal Highways, a copy of the KDOT permit must accompany this request. Ford County oversized load permit fee is $20.00 per load.
Any request for a permit to move oversize loads upon or across any road under the jurisdiction of Ford County or any of the Townships within Ford County shall be accompanied with a map showing the proposed route. This route will be approved or amended by Ford County Administrative Services. A map of the route shall be attached to the permit and kept with the mover and made available for inspection at any time during the move.
Traffic control along the approved route shall meet the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for work within the road right of way and shall have lead and follow vehicles to advice motorists of the hazard. Any signs disturbed shall be replaced in a manner that meets the latest edition of the MUTCD. Sign location or positions shall not be altered beyond the limits of the pilot vehicles both before and after the object being moved.
With the acquisition of the moving permit, the mover agrees to contact the Ford County Administrative Services Department at least 24 hours in advance of entering Ford County with a projected time schedule. This schedule is to advise the Communications Department when and where traffic will be restricted and the approximate duration for each portion of roadway so that emergency vehicles can be directed.
Any costs incurred by the passing of any oversize lad shall be the responsibility of the mover. This includes but is not limited to, the re-positioning or replacement of traffic control devices, any damage on the roadway surface or the right of way, any damage to any structure under the roadway.
