Kansas Weigh Station & DOT Information

Kansas state weigh station map

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 12

Kansas means miles and miles of sunflowers- truly an amazing site if you drive through at the right time of year. People think of Kansas as being flat- but any trucker knows that Kansas is a true up and down state. They aren’t mountains, but if the cruise control isn’t working, it can be a challenge to maintain speed.

PrePass trucks that receive a green light in Kansas must still enter an open weigh station if they are pulling an oversize/overweight (even permitted) load except LCVs operating with a KIA permit- South Haven site only.

The Kansas fuel tax rate is $0.27 per gallon of diesel fuel. This rate includes a 1 penny per gallon environmental fee.
