ODOT Overheight Vehicle Detectors




Overheight Vehicle Detectors detect overheight vehicles moving toward obstacles such as bridges, tunnels and other overhead structures and individually warns drivers. An audible alarm and/or sign is activated when an overheight vehicle is detected by the system. The infra–red based system, coupled with high intensity signing, offers great reliability in detecting and warning drivers of high vehicles to "DIVERT or TURN BACK."
