    on the bridge? Given the possibilities, seems to me they should be at several points. Before getting on bridge, far enough from the overhead for the driver to move over or stop, and on the overhead. Not being on the overhead is the first error.

      Some will post clearances only if they're less than the non-permit height limit, which is 14 feet in WA. More conscientious states will post heights even when they're several feet above the non-permit limit, so the permit load haulers will know how much space they have.
