Megaload Near Mountain Home
(MOUNTAIN HOME, ID) – A megaload carrying 450 tons of oil refinery equipment through Idaho to Canada covered only 40 miles in the past week. The Omega Morgan shipment route will take the equipment through Mountain Home, Carey, and Arco along U.S. Highway 20 before turning north along state Highway 28 and passing through Leadore and Salmon. The megaload was delayed for most of the week due to the Christmas holiday and fog. The load is only authorized to travel on Idaho roads between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
