Indiana’s Oversize-Overweight (OSOW) Vehicle Permit Modernization

Over the last four years, the state of Indiana’s OSOW vehicle permits review process has evolved from paper maps and envelope routes to real-time bridge evaluation and GIS based routing. The release of new permit review software in 2021 represents the culmination of a multiagency partnership, years of work and significant amounts of data clean up. This state-of-the-art program evaluates the entire state bridge network for the specific vehicle configuration and automatically provides the carrier an approved route for most vehicles. Representative from the Indiana Department of Transportation will share a history of the project, lessons learned and thoughts on the value of data collected in the program.
