Testimony: Traffic, trucks delayed up to an hour as first megaloads traveled

At the contested-case hearing on Highway 12 megaloads today, Janice Inghram of Grangeville, who has a photography and video business in the area with her husband, testified that as the three megaloads that already have traveled proceeded along the route so far, she experienced six traffic delays of up to an hour. Under cross-examination, she acknowledged that three of those times, she was observing the delays, rather than being delayed herself; and that she went out the nights of the loads' travel to observe them and videotape them. After traffic finally was allowed to move after an hour delay the first time that Inghram encountered a load in early February, she testified, an 18-wheeler and six logging trucks were among the other vehicles delayed.
