Pennsylvania Weigh Station & DOT Information

Pennsylvania state weigh station map

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 32

Pennsylvania has only two permanent weigh station locations with stationary scales up on I 80 in Clarion. There is one on I 80 east bound at that location and one on I 80 west bound. All the other weigh station locations are rest areas or other areas where DOT brings out a van and sets up with portables. You’ll see in a lot of Pennsylvania rest areas that there are weigh in motion plates on the exit ramps. Be prepared whenever you enter the state of Pennyslvania to encounter a mobil unit at a rest area or welcome center. Chances are they won’t be set up, but you never know… and they COULD be. Better safe than sorry.

The Pennsylvania fuel tax rate is $0.392 per gallon of diesel fuel. This rate includes a $0.261 per gallon oil company franchise tax and a $0.011 per gallon underground storage tank (UST) fee.
