A driver must obtain an oversize and/or overweight vehicle permit before traveling on Indiana roads to ensure the safety of the motoring public if his or her vehicle exceeds:

  • 13 feet 6 inches in height
  • 8 feet 6 inches in width
  • 60 feet (two-vehicle combination) or 53 feet (semi-tractor-semi-trailer combination) in length
  • 80,000 pounds gross vehicle weight (subject to axle weights)

The Oversize/Overweight (OSW) unit at MCS is here to help make these loads non-divisible and properly marked. OSW provides an online service permitting system that allows drivers to request and receive permits at their convenience. In addition, OSW provides the following valuable resources and information about road conditions, restrictions, and much more.

For more information about OSW, call (317) 615-7320.
