The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) has developed a new Commercial Vehicle (CV) Pass System intended to support freight movement during major transportation disruptions.


The state will activate the Commercial Vehicle Pass System when major freight highways are closed or severely restricted, and a limited-capacity detour is available nearby. CV passes will be issued online based on the highway detour's capacity and the priority of goods carried, as determined by the State Emergency Management Division.

The state will hold two test periods, allowing shippers and trucking companies to become familiar with the online CV pass web site. This is an opportunity to pre-register a company and identification number. The test periods will take place:

* Jan. 25-29, 2010

* Feb. 22 - 26, 2010

For more details about the CV Pass System, including the priority categories and the online application for a CV pass, visit www.wsdot.wa.gov/commercialvehicle/detourpass.
