The Kansas permit office is closed on Friday, Jan. 17 and the Oklahoma permit office is not issuing permits in certain counties due to inclement weather.
As Winter Storm Jacob closes in, many roadways are covered in snow and ice in Kansas making road travel, for commercial vehicles especially, very hazardous. The Kansas permit department shut down for the day which means no oversize load permits will be issued until next week.
Oklahoma was not issuing permits in some counties, including Beaver, Texas, Ellis, Harper and Woodward due to the weather:
The state recommends you obtain surrounding state permits prior to obtaining your Oklahoma oversize permit.
From Oklahoma to Maine, the storm is bringing heavy snow, freezing rain and sleet and significant snow accumulations in parts of Minnesota, northern Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and the interior Northeast.
It is expected to intensify Saturday and any commercial travel will be treacherous with long delays throughout the weekend.
