Marc,

Here you go:

Wisconsin DOT Low Bridge List

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

Cool, thanks Rob.

Any idea what they are referring to in the first column "Route" (followed by a 3-digit ID)?

Nope,

And I was trying to figure out what card and noncard meant in the columns showing height. They are two different heights in some cases.

But I was able to find the bridge using the location description. It is a railroad overpass on 63rd Street.

Not sure that list is complete. I will document the couple I know of near me which I don't think are on it. Though, perhaps they are not State highways...
