Mega Load Headed to Idaho Delayed

Benito Baeza

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Municipal and tribal officials have objected to a lack of notification about the shipment of a megaload of oil refinery equipment through Eastern Oregon.

The Ontario Argus Observer reported Tuesday a member of the Warm Springs tribe told state officials at an advisory meeting there’s concern about the shipment’s impact on a conservation area near Prairie City. Vale officials are worried about a 90-degree turn the 380-foot-long transport has to make in that city. The 901,000-pound shipment is bound for Canada.

The moving company reports it has taken longer than expected to load and secure the equipment. The start of the trip is now scheduled for Sunday. State transportation officials say they don’t hold public hearings on megaloads unless hazardous material is involved, but they’re reviewing their notification procedures.
