IDOT will close for King holiday
AMES — The Iowa Department of Transportation is announcing office closures in observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.
All IDOT business locations will be closed Jan. 20.
All IDOT driver’s license stations, normally open Tuesday through Saturday, will be closed Jan. 18, in observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Normal business hours will resume at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 21.
IDOT’s Office of Vehicle and Motor Carrier Services’ permit center will be closed Jan. 20. The permit center will resume normal operations at 8 a.m. on Jan. 21.
Because the Office of Vehicle & Motor Carrier Services typically experiences a heavy workload on the day following a holiday, customers are urged to submit applications for oversize permits, especially those weighing more than 156,000 pounds, several days before the permit is needed.
The Office of Vehicle & Motor Carrier Services, located at 6310 SE Convenience Blvd. 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.
