The Grand List of Oversize/Overweight Permit Sites by State
This list includes every state department of transportation government website for oversize/overweight permits. Many states now have online systems that speed things along, but others still do things by fax or mail. This article provides links as clearly as possible while giving a bit of information about each site in order to hopefully speed things up.

Connecticut – No online system yet, and there are fax and service fees.
