Mega-Loads Will Not Roll Through Moscow As Scheduled

Posted By on Sun, Jul 3, 2011 at 11:37 AM

Residents of Moscow and Coeur d'Alene will be waiting a bit longer before they see mega-loads roll through their towns.

ExxonMobil was set to move three "stripped-down" loads from the Port of Lewiston up U.S. Highway 95 through Moscow to Coeur d'Alene, then onto U.S. Highway 90 over to Montana before heading north to the Kearl Oil Sands Project in Alberta, Canada.

But the Idaho Transportation Department has put a delay on the shipments because of depleted forces. The ITD reported that the Western Governor's Conference, wrapping up in Coeur d'Alene, and the the Fourth of July weekend have needed Idaho State Police, and as a result, new dates will have to be scheduled to issue permits for the mega-loads.
