Special note to motor carriers
The Iowa DOT recommends that commercial vehicle operators plan ahead if they will need services from the Iowa DOT around the Memorial Day weekend. Commercial vehicle operators who need oversize/overweight permits for travel in Iowa during the Memorial Day weekend should obtain them prior to 4:30 p.m. Friday, May 27. 

No movements of oversize/overweight loads will be permitted in Iowa from noon Friday, May 27, until 30 minutes prior to sunrise on Tuesday, May 31. 

Because the permit center typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following the holiday, customers are urged to submit applications for oversize/overweight permits, especially those more than 156,000 pounds, several days before needing the permit.
