Megaloads Could Be Coming To Kootenai County

Megaloads, megaloads, megaloads. I'd never heard the word until recently, now I hear it every day. And we could be seeing them in person. The oversized loads of oil refinery equipment destined for a project in Alberta, Canada, may be detoured north through Kootenai and Shoshone counties.

The Idaho Transportation Department is reviewing a proposal from Imperial Oil/ExxonMobil to reduce the size of 33 megaloads at the Port of Lewiston so they can be shipped up U.S. Highway 95 to Interstate 90. The Spokesman-Review has the details.
