LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — The final two oversized loads of oil field equipment at the Port of Lewiston were set to be shipped out 18 months after the first massive Korean-built equipment arrived by barge via the Columbia and Snake rivers.
Imperial Oil moved three loads on Sunday and planned to move two more late Tuesday, weather permitting, company spokesman Pius Rolheiser said.
“There will still be some additional loads coming out of the port, but they’ll be legal loads on conventional trailers as opposed to these over-legal loads on hydraulic trailers,” Rolheiser told the Missoulian.
Rolheiser estimated the company has 100 loads remaining at the Port of Pasco in Washington, which also will travel Interstates 90 and 15 through Montana.
