Community Development Offices will be closed January 29, 2021

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and please plan accordingly. On January 29, 2021, the entire Larimer County Community Development Department (Building, Planning, Code Compliance, Citizen Resources) will be closed to conduct a system upgrade. This upgrade also affects groups outside of Community Development including Weeds, Health (Septic) and Engineering. The Online Customer Portal is part of this upgrade and will not be available as we transition to a more customer friendly system. No inspections, no permitting, no staff on call, and limited other community development services will be available that day.

User guidance for applying for or viewing a permit.

A Larimer County Special Transportation Permit is required when legal limits are exceeded for any given vehicle dimension, loaded or unloaded, traveling on roads in public rights-of-way or that will directly affect the traveling public in Larimer County.

These permits are issued for travel on roads in unincorporated Larimer County only. Permits for roads incorporated into any city, town or any state highway are permitted through the city, town, or through the State of Colorado, respectively. Criteria for Special Transport Permits include the height, width, length, and weight of the vehicle plus the load.

Larimer County reserves the right to require inspection of designated routes and any load before and after transport, and escort by a County inspector during transport. Fees may be assessed for inspector time. A Larimer County escort does not replace any requirement for pilot vehicles.

A clear route map must be submitted for each permit.

Permit Types:

  • Special Transport - Over Weight/Over Dimension
  • Special Transport - Annual Fleet
  • Special Transport - Annual Over Weight
