FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Permit issued for Bigge Crane equipment shipment to travel on northern Idaho highways

BOISE – Motorists are advised to expect delays on U.S. 95 and Idaho 200 during the transport of a Bigge Crane equipment shipment, the Idaho Transportation Department announced.

ITD issued a permit today (Friday, August 8) to Bigge Crane to move a shipment 21 feet wide, 16 feet, 8 inches high, and 311 feet long.  The shipment will weigh as much as 1,086,000 pounds when additional trucks are needed, such as when it is moving uphill.  When additional trucks are not part of the transport, it will weigh 926,000 pounds.

The permit allows travel between 10 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.

The shipment will enter Idaho from eastern Washington on Idaho 128, then travel north on U.S. 95 to Sandpoint.  At Sandpoint, it will then travel east on Idaho 200 to Montana. It is anticipated to enter Idaho Sunday night.

As much as possible, delays to other vehicles will be limited to 15 minutes.  Flaggers and pilot vehicles will accompany the transport vehicle and notify its driver when other vehicles are approaching.  The shipment will then move to the nearest available pull-out, and let other vehicles pass.

Idaho State Police will accompany the shipment.
