Transport for megaloads is 5 feet wider than road

The ConcoPhillips' megaload transports are 29 feet wide, ITD District 2 maintenance engineer Doral Hoff said just now under questioning from attorney Natalie Havlina. Yet the road, U.S. Highway 12, is just 24 feet wide - two 12-foot lanes. So that means the transport will hang over the fog line of the road as it travels.
