Connecticut Class 8 Truck Weights and Dimensions

Connecticut is similar to other eastern US states, in having increased weights for trucks with gross weights under 73,000 lbs. For instance, this means that 3 axle trucks have gross weights available of 60,000 lbs. Also, tandem axle weights are 36,000 lbs and single axles are permitted 22,400 lbs. In Connecticut, all trucks over 73,000 lbs must meet federal bridge requirements.
