SD Governor Extends Over-Width Hay Hauling Order

October 19, 2012, 5:07 AM

PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has issued an executive order allowing trucks to haul over-width loads of baled hay for another 60 days to help drought-stricken farmers and ranchers.

A trucker with a permit can move a load of baled livestock feed up to 12 feet wide or 15 feet high for two hours after sunset and two hours before sunrise. Those over-width hay loads will be allowed until the drought emergency ends, but no later than Dec. 21.

Over-width vehicles must have flashing or rotating white or amber warning lights on each side. Warning lights must be clearly visible to motorists approaching from the front or rear.

The normal size restriction for loads on South Dakota highways is 14 feet 3 inches high and 8 feet 6 inches wide.
