Update on the oil megaloads on Highway 12

One megaload reaches Lolo; one stuck on Highway 12-

    They’re rolling again. There was a giant generator (probably 2500 square feet x 18′ high) at a pullout Tuesday night on the Lochsa. It had made it to Lolo by Wednesday afternoon; the coke drums were both at a pullout north of Lolo through Wednesday afternoon.

    BOISE (AP) � An environmental group wants a federal judge to step in and block plans to haul dozens of oversized truckloads of oil refinery equipment along a northern Idaho highway federally protected river corridor.

    Idaho Rivers United filed its complaint Thursday in U.S. District Court in Boise against the U.S. Forest Service, alleging the agency neglected its duty and federal laws by allowing Idaho officials to give ExxonMobil Corp. permits to haul the giant loads along U.S. Highway 12.
