The Brazoria County Engineering Department and the Brazoria County Sheriff's Office have formed a partnership in law enforcement. The Weight Scale Enforcement Program, targeting overweight semi tractor trailers and other commercial trucks on our County's roads, has been initiated. The program is designed to decrease road damage from overweight trucks and to increase public safety.
Texas Transportation Code, Section 621.409 allows for this Weight Scale Enforcement Program and will ensure that commercial trucking industries obey the weight limit laws on Brazoria County's roads.
HEAVY LOAD PERMIT: Pursuant to Section 623.018 of the Texas Transportation Code, all individuals, firms, partnerships, companies or corporations wishing to operate or move a vehicle or combination of vehicles of a size or weight of vehicle or load exceeding the maximums, specified in Chapter 621, Subsection B and Subsection C of the Texas Transportation Code, on any or all Brazoria County maintained highways must obtain Heavy Load Permit. Application forms and information on the policies and procedures for the issuance of HEAVY LOAD PERMITS are available in the Brazoria County Engineer's Office.
UTILITY PERMIT: To receive necessary permit for underground telephone, television, gas lines or other utilities along county roads, the submission of drawings/plans for the Engineer's review and record is required.
There is currently no permit fee.
