Superload Escorts

A Superload is any vehicle (plus its load) which exceeds the following weights and dimensions:

  • Width exceeding 17 feet
  • Height exceeding 15 feet
  • Length exceeding 110 feet
  • Weight exceeding 108,000 pounds

Superloads weighing less than 200,000 pounds may require a police escort depending on road conditions.  Superloads weighing 200,000 pounds or more require a police escort if the route includes bridge slowdowns.  All superloads require a permit issued by the Indiana Department of Revenue (IDOR).

Superload escorts may occur only Monday through Friday, between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm, unless it is deemed an emergency movement and such movement is approved by INDOT or IDOR. (Superloads will be declared an emergency ONLY for life and death situations.)
