Day 2 of the contested-case hearing on ConocoPhillips’ proposed megaloads on U.S. Highway 12 in north-central Idaho has resumed this morning, with attorney Natalie Havlina continuing to question ITD District 2 maintenance engineer Doral Hoff. Asked how long the entire convoy, including the giant truck, will be, Hoff said it’ll include an escort in front and in back, Idaho State Police in back, an ambulance and vehicle-repair truck, plus another vehicle two hours in front. All told, the convoy for each of the four megaloads would be “probably 265, 270 feet” long, Hoff said.
