Highway 12 decision still pending…

Here’s a update from the Lewiston Tribune: “Second District Judge John Bradbury is still working on his decision in a case where the court has been asked to block four mega-truckloads from traveling on U.S. Highway 12 from Lewiston to a refinery in Billings, Mont. The judge had hoped to be finished by noon. But by midday his ruling had already topped 40 pages and still wasn’t complete. Bradbury spent more than two hours in a Monday hearing with attorneys representing the Idaho Transportation Department, ConocoPhillips and three Idaho residents who filed the action. ITD issued permits for the loads to move Friday, but promised they wouldn’t start their journey until after Bradbury’s ruling. The plaintiffs claim the loads would present safety hazards, erode tourism and possibly threaten the scenic river corridor along which they would travel.”
