Transport of oversized load stalled by permits until Monday

Local News

A superload originally set to travel through Jay, Adams, Allen and DeKalb counties early Thursday has been stalled by permits and now won’t pull out until Monday.

The Indiana Department of Transportation said Thursday it failed to secure permits from cities and towns, which halted the movement of the superload.

INDOT had planned to temporarily close portions of U.S. 27, U.S. 224, S.R. 101, S.R. 1 and U.S. 6 to accommodate the transport.

INDOT said short-term closures of cross streets would take place throughout the move, and where roads are only two lanes, the highway section was to be closed to allow the convoy, traveling 15 mph, to pass.

That will now be the case on Monday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Drivers should be prepared for temporary closures and slow-moving traffic along the superload’s route.

Below are more details on the route planned now for Monday.

  • The convoy will begin on U.S. 27 northbound, out of Bryant in Jay County
  • The convoy will travel U.S. 27 northbound to U.S. 224 eastbound through Adams County
  • The convoy will continue on U.S. 224 eastbound to S.R. 101 northbound, through Allen County
  • From S.R. 101 northbound, the convoy will advance to S.R. 1 northbound in DeKalb County
  • The convoy will finish its move through Indiana on U.S. 6 eastbound in DeKalb County toward the Ohio State Line.
