Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code. Deletes language allowing the Department of Transportation to designate streets or highways in the system of State highways as Class III highways. Provides that non-designated highways include highways that have lane widths of less than 11 feet, State highways not designated as Class I or II, and local highways which are part of any county, township, municipal, or district road system not designated as Class II. Deletes language regarding: the maximum length of vehicles on all non-State highways; and the highways that vehicles not exceeding 65 feet in overall length are allowed to access. Provides that combinations of vehicles over 65 feet in length with no overall length limitation are allowed certain access if there is no sign prohibiting access and the route is not being used as a thoroughfare between Class I or Class II highways. Provides that the maximum length limitation on non-designated highways for a truck tractor in combination with a semitrailer is 65 feet overall dimension and 60 feet overall dimension for a truck tractor-semitrailer-trailer or truck tractor semitrailer-semitrailer. Provides that length limitations do not apply on legal holidays and for a tow truck in combination with a disabled vehicle or combination of disabled vehicles. Provides that a unit of local government shall affirm to the Department if it has no Class II designated truck routes. Provides that units of local government shall report to the Department, and the Department shall post on its website, any limitations prohibiting the operation of vehicles imposed by ordinance or resolution in the unit of local government's non-designated highway system. Provides that, to be effective, an ordinance or resolution passed to designate a Class II roadway need not be signed, but shall be reported to the Department. Repeals a provision that requires local units of government to report to the Department all preferred truck routes, designated truck route networks, or whether there are no such truck routes.

House Floor Amendment No. 2
Provides that Class II highways include state highways and designated local roads (rather than major arterials) not built to interstate highways standards that have at least 11 feet lane widths. Deletes language providing that non-designated highways include highways that have lane widths of less than 11 feet. Provides that each unit of local government may (rather than shall) report to the Department of Transportation any limitations prohibiting the operation of vehicles imposed by ordinance or resolution in the unit of local government's non-designated highway system. Deletes language providing that to be effective, an ordinance or resolution passed to designate a Class II roadway need not be signed, but shall be reported to the Department. Provides instead that to be effective, an ordinance or resolution designating a Class II roadway need not require that signs be erected, but the designation shall be reported to the Department. Makes other changes.
