Emmert says it’s coordinating with area trucking firms on Highway 12

Emmert International project manager Mark Albrecht said his firm has contacted several commercial trucking firms in the Highway 12 area to coordinate plans and set up protocols for notifying each other when trucks are moving. Asked why the ConocoPhillips megaloads are planned to move at night, Albrecht said, "ITD asked us can we move at night, and we said yes we can." He said he personally surveyed nighttime traffic on several parts of the route, and found it light.
