Permit fees and some restrictions waived

Expires: Oct. 31, 2022

Severe drought conditions through much of the state have prompted the Missouri Department of Transportation to offer a special overwidth hauling permit to help farmers and ranchers move hay as needed. Loads must be of legal height, length and weight. Permits can be requested online using the MoDOT Carrier Express online service.  In order to have the fee waived, customers can call in when submitting their application or put a comment on the application about the fee waiver to have the agent waive the fee. The blanket permit fee of $64 and single trip fee of $15 will be waived through Oct. 31, 2022.
