Major Accomplishment 2018 - AGC gets technical correction on Truck Weights at both the State and Federal Level


The AGC of NH had released its Truck Weight Overview back in 2016. The report showed results of a survey the association conducted on local construction and trucking companies to determine how many are affected by the removal of a footnote on the state axle spacing chart. The report also examines safety and financial implications, federal and state truck weight laws, and comparisons with other New England states. The association worked with the state legislature to find a solution and was successful at passing necessary language at the state level in 2016. AGC continued to work with our Congressional delegation to get a technical correction at the federal level so our state truck weights would be the same for the interstate highways. On March 23, 2018, President Donald Trump signed the Omnibus bill to keep the government open but it also included the AGC of NH technical correction.
