ConocoPhillips' shipment of mega-loads is not going as planned.
Due to a wintry blast icing the already-challenging U.S. Highway 12, a giant piece of oil refinery equipment remains parked just outside of Kooskia. The load was expected to arrive at the Idaho-Montana border by this time tomorrow. No official word yet if the load will try to roll again at 10 p.m. tonight.
Adam Rush, spokesman for the Idaho Transportation Department, said a new traffic plan will be required before the next load can leave the Port of Lewiston, which is now scheduled for Monday, Feb. 7.
