The latest round of megaloads are parked at the Port of Wilma, just west of Clarkston.
The first of the two is scheduled to leave tonight at about 10 pm and make it to the Montana border early Tuesday morning.
Assuming that happens without a hitch, the second will leave Tuesday also at about 10 pm. Like the other, it is expected to make it across Idaho on U.S. Highway 12 in a single segment of travel. That trip would end early Wednesday morning.
It is their width that makes these shipments megaloads. They are wide enough to consume almost two lanes of traffic, but at about 50 feet, they are about as long as a standard semi truck.
Still no word about their final destination. I am working on that.
