***You may not start or end a permit on the interstate (except for state borders). If you're getting 'limited access area' errors, try moving the start/end of your route to the first road segment past the ramp on/off the interstate.***
Welcome to Iowa's online permitting system (IAPS). This site issues permits for oversize and overweight vehicles along state owned routes only. This includes Interstate, US, & IA routes. Permits for local or city routes should be obtained from those respective agencies.
