Megaloads Draw Protesters

Four megaload shipments traveling through Moscow on Tuesday night drew about 16 protesters, Moscow Police Chief David Duke said.

The equipment shipments, hauled by Omega Morgan, came through Moscow in pairs, with the first two rolling through town around 11 pm and the second two around 2 am.  Duke said the protesters were gathered on the corner of Third and Washington streets with signs, when the first pair of megaloads came through, but did not cause any interference.  He said that, by the time the second pair came through Moscow, the protesters had left.

Each of the four shipments was 20 feet wide, 15 feet tall, 75 feet long, and weighed less than 80,000 pounds.  After reaching Coeur d’Alene, the shipments turned east to the Montana border on Interstate 90.
