Mississippi Weigh Station & DOT Information

Mississippi state weigh station map

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 41

PrePass trucks that receive a green light in Florida must still enter an open weigh station if they are pulling an oversize/overweight (even permitted) load except manufactured housing haulers approved by MS DOT. Private carriers transporting taxable petroleum products must also enter an open Mississippi weigh station.

The height limitation for Mississippi is 13 ft 6 inches. However, Section 63-5-17 reads:

No person, firm, or corporation of the State of Mississippi, or any subdivision thereof, shall be required to raise, alter, construct, or reconstruct any underpass, wire, pole, trestle, or other structure to permit the passage of any vehicle having a height, unladen, or with a load, in excess of twelve feet and six inches. Full liability for damage to any structure caused by any vehicle having a height in excess of twelve feet six inches, shall be bourne entirely by the motor carrier or operator of the vehicle.

Car haulers beware!

The Mississippi fuel tax rate is $0.188 per gallon of diesel. This rate includes a $0.004 per gallon environmental protection fee. There is an additional $0.03 seawall tax per gallon in Hancock, Harrison and Jackson counties.
