Conoco wants quick go-ahead for mega-loads

Here’s a news item from the Associated Press: LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — ConocoPhillips is asking the Idaho Supreme Court to quickly announce whether it will uphold or overturn a lower court’s decision to halt the movement of four oversized loads of refinery equipment on Idaho roadways. ConocoPhillips wants to transfer the refinery equipment from Lewiston over Lolo Pass and in to Montana, where it will be used to upgrade a refinery in Billings, Mont. The Lewiston Tribune reports the company filed a motion Monday asking the high court to announce its decision as soon as possible, even if the written ruling is not yet available. The company says if a favorable decision is received quickly, it could still have time to move the loads over the pass before winter sets in. The court heard arguments on Oct. 1.
