Weigh Stations

A Study of Weigh Station Technologies
Connecticut Academy Science and Engineering (CASE), Connecticut Department of Transportation (completed)
  • Study Manager: David Pines, University of Hartford
  • Study Consultant: Clara Fang
The focus of the study is to identify technologies and practices that have the potential to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of Connecticut weigh stations to deter the passage of overweight and unsafe vehicles across the state’s interstate highways; to increase the transit efficiency for the large fraction of trucks moving across Connecticut that are compliant with Connecticut laws and regulations; and to utilize information gathered through weigh system technologies for the multiple purposes of enforcement, highway design, pavement performance evaluations, and highway maintenance budgeting.
