Indiana Construction and Permits
The Indiana Department of Revenue has recently sent out a notice that carriers who are applying for oversize or overweight permits need to plan ahead. During the summer months there is an enormous amount of construction. The increased need for oversize and overweight permits is causing delays in successfully obtaining these permits. Also due to construction company changes which can occur without notice; it would be prudent for companies using the oversize/overweight permits to pre-check their routes. Routine pre-checks can avoid delays or stoppages which lead to increased traffic congestion along the permitted route. Try to obtain your permits at least 3 days before you are scheduled to depart.
