Effective January 8, 2020 single trip permits will be valid for the duration of 5 days instead of 3 days in the state of Arkansas.
The news was first announced in early January on the Arkansas’ automated online permit system home page.
This is something many in the oversize load and specialized transportation transportation industry see as a positive, and will eliminate the hassle of having to order another trip permit after only 3 days.
In the oversize sector, loads face delays due to breakdowns, weather and travel restrictions so the added two days will help with having to reorder oversize permits.
Exceptions to this rule are the following: hay movement will remain for 3 days, sealed container will remain for 6 days and house movements will remain for 2 days.
