Carriers and drivers using Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service will soon be able to pass by 21 weigh stations in Oregon through the Oregon Green Light preclearance program.
The Green Light sites are automated weigh stations on Interstates 5, 82, and 84; U.S. Highways 30, and 97; and Oregon Highways 58 and 730. Activation of the new sites will take place over the next few months.
“Carriers and drivers using our weigh station bypass service won’t need to separately sign up for the Oregon Green Light program, install a separate transponder, or incur any additional cost,” said Brian Mofford, vice president of government experience for Drivewyze. “This is great news for Drivewyze customers traveling on Interstate 5.”
Since its deployment in 2001, OGL has provided more than 25 million preclearance bypasses to nearly 4,000 participating truck fleets and operators. According to the OGL program, that equates to 2 million hours saved for truckers, and more than $250 million saved in operational costs.
With Drivewyze currently offering weigh station bypasses at more than 700 sites in 43 states and provinces, it operates the largest weigh station bypass network in the United States and Canada.
