Indiana opens up weigh stations to truck parking amid Coronavirus crisis

Authorities in Indiana have opted to allow trucks to park at most of the state’s weigh stations to aid truckers during the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak.

From the Indiana Motor Truck Association:

The Indiana State Police has opened all Indiana weigh stations to ALL truck drivers for parking 24/7 (except Seymour due to construction on I-65) in conjunction with the FMCSA HOS waiver. You do not need to be hauling essential goods for the waiver to park. Thank you to our partners at the Indiana State Police. 

Notes on parking will follow the locations:
Lowell (maybe limited as INDOT is using as a construction office/storage area) – I65 SB 231.5 mm
Chesterton – I94 EB & WB east of IN 49 at the 29MM
Warren – I69 SB 280 mm
Richmond – I70 WB 148 mm
West Harrison – I74 EB 171 mm
Terre Haute – I70 EB 0 mm

We will permit truck parking, including overnight parking, at the scale houses during the Federally Declared Emergency under the following circumstances:

1. Parking does not interfere with the operations of the facility 
a. Parking in only marked, striped parking spaces
b. No parking on any ramps
c. No parking in the scale lanes or in front of the inspection barns
d. No parking in unmarked areas of the parking facilities or areas designated for staff or handicap parking
