Best guide for bridges, underpasses, tunnels, steep grades, etc.

Is there a single, best source for planning information on bridge dimensions and weight limits, underpass heights, steep grades, tunnels, etc.? It seems like the trucking industry would have something like this that gets updated regularly, but I can't seem to find anything like it. Thanks for any help.

Allstays Camp and RV app for smart phones and tablets, or you can access them at their web site. I believe they also have a truckers app/site/info. Awesome source of info. Hope it helps.

Thank you all. I've downloaded the ipad apps and they look good. I'll get the Rand McNally atlas soon.

Try www.lowclearances.com. Also look at www.aitaonline.com. First one charges and second is free if you can dig your way thru it. On the AITA site select "truckstops", then the "state" you want info on, then "low clearances/bridge heights/restricted rules". Won't print out right but still good info.
Good luck and safe travels!

The website doesn't show that it is compatible so I would guess that it isn't, at this time. Maybe you will get lucky and they will add that to their list.
Good luck and safe travels!

The highways are highlighted in orange that are legal for a truck with a height of 13ft 6in, very simple.

Rand McNally Motor Carriers 2014 road atlas is $9.99 at Love's travel centers. It has everything a commercial truck/bus driver needs to safely navigate the U.S.A. and Canada.
