- Where and why they occur
- Identifying structures in need of an overheight solution
- How overheight warning systems work
- Rightsizing the configuration
- And more
Every day, overheight vehicles collide with low-clearance structures, such as bridges and highway underpasses.
In an Alaska Department of Transportation survey of 29 U.S. states, 18 indicated that they consider overheight collisions a significant problem. In fact, Maryland identified 1,496 bridges susceptible to overheight impacts across the state, with 309 (20 percent) having been struck at least once.
Unfortunately, these collisions can result in serious injuries and fatalities, though no nationwide database exists to track how many. They also cost governments millions of dollars each year.
The average cost of an overheight collision can range from $200,000 to $300,000, according to the Texas DOT.
