CRTS

Coal Resource Transportation System Roads (CRTS)

In March, 2003, Senate Bill 583 was passed which established the Coal Resource Transportation System (CRTS) in fifteen southern West Virginia counties.  On these designated routes, coal haulers may purchase a permit that will allow for a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of up to120,000 pounds depending on their truck configuration.

In April, 2005, House Bill 3089 was passed which expanded the CRTS and created the Coal Resource Transportation Designation Committee (CRTDC), the purpose of which is to approve the designation of additional CRTS routes outside the following ten counties (Boone, Fayette, Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, Mercer, Mingo, Raleigh, Wayne, and Wyoming).  Routes in these ten counties are considered for approval by the Division of Highways (DOH) and not the CRTDC.

For any general CRTS questions please call Bill Murray at (304) 558-9741 or email him at bill.r.murray@wv.gov.  Enforcement questions and concerns can be addressed at 1-866-SEE-TRUX (733-8789).
