Annual Permits & Oversize Permit Policies

It is the policy of the Wapello County Engineer not to issue annual permits for Wapello County. Wapello County will issue oversize permits to individuals on a trip-by-trip basis. Due to the number of projects going on within the county, this enables the county engineer to be aware of traffic in and out of the county and hopefully will avoid any mishaps from road closures or bridge projects.

Annual Specific Route permits are available subject to County Engineer approval. Please contact our office for more information.
