Vermont DMV issues commercial vehicle advisory for eclipse


The Vermont Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has issued a commercial vehicle advisory ahead of a solar eclipse taking place in April.

On March 22, 2024, the Vermont DMV issued a traffic alert ahead of the solar eclipse occurring on April 8. Officials say that the northern half of Vermont will “fall into the path of totality” during the eclipse, which is expected to bring a major influx of traffic to the area on the days before, during, and after the eclipse.

The Vermont DMV is “strongly urging commercial motor vehicle drivers traveling to and through Vermont on those dates to consider alternative delivery dates and routes whenever possible to avoid the expected increase in traffic.”

In addition to the commercial vehicle traffic advisory, the Vermont DMV will institute Saturday, Sunday, and Holiday restrictions for over dimension/overweight commercial motor vehicles effective for Monday, April 8, 2024. Permits will not be issued for state highways for the movement of loads in excess of one hundred eight thousand (108,000) pounds or more than twelve feet (12’0”) wide or more than one hundred feet (100’) long.
