Superloads are big and often in the way, but they are necessary for growth of industry and the economy. Missouri is continuing the tough conversation of how regulations, restrictions, and aging infrastructure affect others and we appreciate their willingness to listen.

They compiled a video trailer (full video to be published in May) and article with their findings (link below).
We have been apart of a 2 year transportation research study to help detail and illustrate the challenges faced when permitting oversize and overweight loads across the United States. This project started in 2013 and the findings have recently been published by The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) on the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) website.
