Trench widths are based on an analysis per the 14th edition of the "standard specification for highway bridges" by A.A.S.H.T.O.  An assumed axle loading of 12 tons with a 30% impact factor was used.  The axle length is 6 feet; therefore the number of wheels carried by a plate depends on the roadway width.  

Plates shall be secured from lateral movement while in use by means of materials such as asphalt-base cold mix.
