Megaload Scrapes Rock, Causes Delay

Parked between the Clearwater River and U.S. Highway 12 at Kooskia, Idaho, the first megaload of a ConocoPhillips half-drum awaits its third leg of its journey across Idaho to a refinery at Billings, Mont. Snowfall expected at higher elevations ahead has stopped the long caravan of vehicles. The Associated Press reports that the megaload scraped on rocks along the route and caused a 59-minute delay. The Idaho Transportation Department is demanding that the company submit a new plan before allowing a second megaload to leave from the Port of Lewiston. Story here.

Question: Anyone out there ready to say: I told you so?
