Megaload 25 Miles North Of Moscow

A megaload that left the Port of Wilma Sunday is taking a break after encountering peaceful protests in Moscow and Lewiston. The hydrocracker section bound for a Calumet refinery in Great Falls, Mont., is at the Latah/Benewah county line, about 25 miles north of Moscow, said Idaho State Police Capt. Lonnie Richardson. It will wait to resume its trip until at least this evening so that its movements can be coordinated with construction farther north along U.S. Highway 95, Richardson said. The state police officers are being paid by Bigge Crane, the contractor hauling the megaload, to travel with the shipment. Richardson said troopers are there to coordinate emergency responses, make sure other vehicles on the road don't face significant delays and to prevent protesters from blocking its progress/Elaine Williams, Lewiston Tribune.
