    Im gonna be coming from Savannah going to Morrisville Pa. Ill be overweight about 90k and 11'4 wide.

    Im trying to decide easiest way to go.... If I came up 95 through Delaware to 495-95 through Philly, do I need an escort or city permit for being over 11 wide?(Or is that just delivering in Philly).
     
    Another Canadian driver and cke Thank this.

    I think if you're under 11'6". You are not required to have Philadelphia Police Escorts. And if 90k is your gross weight. That wouldn't require anything other than a permit.

    A Philly permit is for Philly streets. You shouldn’t need anything but a PA permit if you’re going to Morrisville.

    You can run nights in Maryland FYI.

    I would almost consider going up thru MD around 695 to 83 to the PA pike to 276 To US 1. Avoid 95 thru Philly all together.
