MDT to Issue Permit to Move 'Mega Loads' from Idaho through Montana

Posted: Updated:

The Montana Department of Transportation will be issuing a permit to move one of three 'mega loads' from Idaho through Montana to its final destination of Great Falls.

Montana Department of Transportation Public Information Officer Lori Ryan said that the permit will be issued to Bigge Crane and Rigging Co. to transport of one of three modules destined for Calumet Refinery.

She said that that move, which will occur in seven stages, will take place at night to minimize travel disruptions to others along the route.

The roughly 21-foot-long load is currently in Idaho and could enter Montana on Highway 200 as early as next Monday, August 18.

The specific route of the load is planned as follows:

· Entering Montana on MT 200

· North on MT 56 to US 2

· East on US 2 to Meridian Road in Kalispell

· North on Meridian Road to US 93

· North on US 93 to MT 40

· East on MT 40 to Secondary 206

· South on Secondary 206 to Mt 35

· South on MT 35 to MT 83

· South on MT 83 to MT 200

· East on MT 200 to the Vaughn Frontage Road

· Vaughn Frontage Road to the NW Bypass in Great Falls

· NW Bypass to 3rd Street

Ryan advises motorists traveling this route at night to expect traffic delays of up to 10 minutes and encourages them to find another route to travel.

She added that Bigge Crane and Rigging Co. has also submitted an application to transport the remaining two modules using I-15. These modules will be transferred from the rail and enter I-15 south of Dillon.
