IDOT offices closed throughout Memorial Day weekend
AMES — The Iowa Department of Transportation will be closing its offices throughout the Memorial Day weekend, Saturday through Monday, which includes:
• IDOT business locations will be closed Monday, Memorial Day.
• IDOT driver’s license stations will be closed and resume operations at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, May 28.
• IDOT’s office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services, normally open Monday through Friday, will be closed Monday.
Normal business hours will resume at 8 a.m. Tuesday. This includes the permit center.
IDOT recommends commercial vehicle operators plan ahead if needing services around the Memorial Day weekend.
Commercial vehicle operators who need fuel or trip permits for travel in Iowa during the Memorial Day weekend should obtain them prior to 4:30 p.m. Friday.
No movements of oversize loads will be permitted in Iowa from noon, Friday until 30 minutes prior to sunrise Tuesday.
Because the permit center typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following the holiday, customers are urged to submit applications for oversize permits, especially those more than 156,000 pounds, several days before needing the permit.
The permit center in Ankeny, is a one-stop source for fuel, trip and oversize load permits; International Registration Plan registration; International Fuel Tax Agreement licensing; and travel authority needed by motor carriers and commercial vehicle operators to operate in Iowa.
