ITD: Conoco sent loads to Lewiston with ‘no guarantee’ it’d get permits

Asked why ConocoPhillips would ship its four megaloads of oil refinery equipment to the Port of Lewiston without permits in hand to truck them over Highway 12 to Montana, ITD motor vehicles administrator Alan Frew said, "There was no guarantee. There were probably some informal assurances given that the weights look good based on what we had seen so far. But we were a long way from approving this."
