Iowa Increases Weight Limits for Grain

Governor signs proclamation to increase transportation limits for efficient, effective collection during grain harvest

source: USDA Grain Transportation Report

For harvest deliveries, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds recently signed a proclamation to increase truck weight limits for grain transportation.

Addressing concerns about heavy agricultural traffic throughout the state, the higher limits are intended to ensure efficient and effective collection of the grain harvest.

Effective immediately and continuing through October 17 or earlier as determined by the governor, the proclamation allows vehicles transporting corn, soybeans, hay, straw, silage and stover to be overweight without a permit.

Vehicles, however, cannot exceed 90,000 pounds gross weight. The proclamation further applies to loads transported on all Iowa highways, excluding the interstate system.

These covered vehicles cannot exceed the legal maximum axle weight limit of 20,000 pounds by more than 12.5%, and must comply with posted limits on roads and bridges.
