Truck weight limit increased for harvest

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A proclamation was signed Tuesday by Governor Chet Culver temporarily increasing the weight limits of trucks that are hauling harvest goods.

The increase is aimed specifically at those hauling corn, soybeans, hay, straw and stover.  It allows them to increase their loads by 10 percent per axle without getting a permit.

The increase includes all Iowa roads, but does not include the federal interstate system and is good for 60 days.
