Chapter 324

< > Effective - 28 Aug 2001    bottom

  324.718.  Application procedure for special permit — travel plan required, alternate plans permitted. — 1.  Application for a special permit to move a house must be made to the chief engineer of the department of transportation at least two days prior to the date of the move.  For good cause shown, this time may be waived by the chief engineer.

  2.  A travel plan shall accompany the application for the special permit. The travel plan will show the proposed route, the time estimated for each segment of the move, and* a plan to handle traffic so that no one delay to other highway users shall exceed twenty minutes.  The chief engineer shall review the travel plan and if the route cannot accommodate the move due to roadway weight limits, bridge size or weight limits, or will cause undue interruption of traffic flow, the special permit shall not be issued.

  3.  The applicant may submit alternate plans if desired until an acceptable route is determined.  If the width of the house to be relocated is more than thirty-six feet, or if no acceptable travel plan has been filed, and the denial of the permit would cause a hardship, the application and travel plan may be submitted to the chief engineer on appeal.  After reviewing the route and travel plan, the chief engineer may in his or her discretion issue the permit after considering the practical physical limitations of the route, the nature and purpose of the move, the size and weight of the house, the distance the house is to be moved, and the safety and convenience of the traveling public.  A surety bond in the amount to cover the cost of any damage to the pavement, structures, bridges, roadway or other damages that may occur may be required if deemed necessary by the chief engineer.
