Propane Carrier Proclamation

Regulatory provisions of Iowa law pertaining to hours of service for crews and drivers delivering propane used for residential, agricultural and commercial heating have been temporarily suspended. High demand, long wait times at terminals, and hazardous driving conditions in the Midwest have created challenges to timely access of propane products in the state.

This proclamation expires on Feb. 5, 2022.


Disaster proclamation

Motor carriers assisting with the disaster repair and delivering goods and services while responding to disaster sites are temporarily waived from hours of service requirements as they pertain to Iowa Code 321.449.

On nonā€interstate Iowa roads only, motor carriers hauling loads related to disaster repairs may exceed the weights listed in Iowa Code 321.463 by 12.5% without a permit, so long as they don’t exceed 20,000 pounds on an individual axle, and their total weight does not exceed 90,000 pounds. Trucks are still required to obey posted bridge restrictions.

This proclamation expires Jan. 15, 2022.



The harvest proclamation allows vehicles transporting corn, soybeans, hay, straw, silage and stover to be overweight (not exceeding 90,000 pounds gross weight) without a permit through Jan. 29, 2022.

This proclamation applies to loads transported on all highways within Iowa (excluding the interstate system) and those which do not exceed a maximum of 90,000 pounds gross weight, do not exceed the maximum axle weight limit determined under the non-primary highway maximum gross weight table in Iowa Code § 321.463 (6) (b), by more than 12.5 percent, do not exceed the legal maximum axle weight limit of 20,000 pounds, and comply with posted limits on roads and bridges.
