IDOT Extends Overweight Exemption until June 28

Although we told you in yesterday's email that the exemption to allow overweight loads during the pandemic had ended, IDOT has now reinstated the exemption until June 28 to continue to allow supplies critical during this period to take advantage of larger loads.  This is also very important for the livestock industry.  This extension allows up to 90,000 lbs on five axles or up to 12% above legal loads on fewer axles.  However, be reminded that you must carry the declaration in your truck and you must also observe all bridge and local road posting restrictions.  Click here to read a story from Illinois Farm Bureau about the extension.
