Hurricane Harvey is finally gone

Hurricane Harvey has finally left the area.

As the water recedes in most areas, our operators are beginning to start the cleanup and the repairs of their systems.

We will do our best to keep information updated on this page for your use.

Check back to this page as we will be adding information as we receive it.

Special Waivers for operator qualification requirements

If you are beginning repairs and are using mutual assistance from our surrounding systems or from contractors, you may request a special waver for operator qualification requirements from the Railroad Commission via the safety email:

Permits for oversize/overweight loads going into the hurricane-affected areas.

TxDMV will not be issuing oversize/overweight permits for travel into or out of the Harvey disaster areas unless they are specifically involved in disaster relief areas

The TxDMV will not issue oversize/overweight permits for travel into or out of disaster areas (see map below) for loads not related to relief efforts. Only oversize and/or overweight vehicles involved in the relief efforts will be allowed to travel in the Hurricane Harvey affected areas. Active permits issued prior to the disaster will be extended as needed for travel at a later date.

Motor carriers transporting oversize and/or overweight loads for Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts have two options, the permit waiver per Gov. Gregg Abbott’s Declaration of Disaster or the MAP-21 Emergency Relief Permit per President Trump’s Declaration of Disaster.
