Route Clearing and Transportation System

Welcome to the Caltrans Route Clearing and Transportation System for oversize/overweight routing and on-line permit issuance system. The NEW on-line permit issuance system consists of two components: CalRoute and STARS2.

CalRoute Route Clearing Database
The new CalRoute route clearing database is available to all users to view bridge weight ratings, vertical clearances, short term restrictions, pilot car requirements and other additional information in order to plan safe travel along California highways. All STARS2 permit applications utilize CalRoute for route clearing before submittal. Visit CalRoute for training videos, FAQ, and to view the route clearing database.

STARS2 : Single Trip and Routing System 2.0
Through the STARS2 system you can create a route using CalRoute and submit a completed application for a single-trip oversize or overweight permit electronically for processing by the Caltrans permit issuance team.
