(S.D.)- SD Governor Extends Over-Width Hay Hauling Order

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 12/21/2012 06:25 AM
     PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard has extended an executive order allowing trucks to haul over-width loads of baled hay to help drought-stricken farmers and ranchers.
 
     A previous order allowing over-width loads of hay was due to expire Friday. The governor extended it to Feb. 21.
 
     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. The normal size restriction for loads on South Dakota highways is 14 feet 3 inches high and 8 feet 6 inches wide.
 
     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.
