Medford, OR – According to the Oregon Department of Transportation, these delays will accommodate an oversized transport scheduled to travel during eight or more evenings as it moves from north of Pendleton to the Idaho border.
State officials also said that the shipment consists of boiler equipment and is expected to travel 5 to 30 mph along segments of OR 37, Interstate 84 in Pendleton, U.S. 395, U.S. 26, U.S. 20, OR 78, U.S. 95 and other roads in Umatilla, Grant, Harney and Malheur counties.
It will exit Oregon into Idaho via U.S. 95 north of Jordan Valley.
The oversize load will travel during nighttime hours to reduce impacts to other highway users.
It will not move during snow, ice, fog, or other hazardous conditions and will be parked off the roadway when it is not traveling.
Because the movement of this load is dependent on weather, equipment and other conditions, the travel dates may change.
The size of the shipment will require it to use both travel lanes on two-lane highways, resulting in delays.
Traffic will be stopped at regular intervals with pilot cars in front of and behind the load informing the movers when to pull over at designated sites to let waiting vehicles pass.
The total transport trailer and push/pull vehicles will be 217 feet long, 23.5 feet wide and 26.5 feet tall. The cargo itself is about 44 feet long.
