(UNDATED) – After extensive development and testing, the all-new Indiana Oversize/Overweight Permitting System is scheduled to go live on Feb. 8.
To facilitate the transition to the new system, DOR’s Motor Carrier Services (MCS) will stop taking applications for new OSW permits at 4 p.m. EST on Monday, Feb. 1.
Carriers may travel on permits previously applied for as long as permit applications are completed by 4 p.m. EST on Feb. 1 and paid for by 4 p.m. EST on Feb. 4. Due to increased volume, officials ask you to submit your requests as early as possible.
MCS is asking customers to carefully review the detailed information on osw.in.gov now to prepare for the temporary disruption in permitting services.
Online access to the current system will be limited to viewing, payments, and downloads of permits in process until 4 p.m. EST on Thursday, Feb. 4.
After 4 p.m. on Feb. 4, until the new system goes online on Feb. 8, there will be no online permitting functions available.
Also, you may review the user guide to learn how the new system works. It is recommended to have it readily available when you use the new system for the first time.
The new Indiana Oversize/Overweight Permitting System will have a new look and several new features. While you’ll be able to access the system in the same way, the new system will be easier to use.
Additionally, permits will be more accurate and processing times will be reduced. Customers will be able to enter specific destinations, rather than just city names, choose among up to four pre-approved routes (where available), and immediately download permits without waiting up to 24 hours for a manual review (for most permits).
You will not need to create a new account when using the new system for the first time.
Funding for the new Indiana Oversize/Overweight Permitting System, developed by ProMiles Inc., was provided by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT).
