Superload journey delayed due to weather

From staff reports

PennDOT said Monday that the journey of the superload being transported from West Milton, New York, to Wampum, Pennsylvania, has been delayed due to the intense winter weather.

The 213-foot-long, 294-ton load is expected to continue its journey after 10 p.m. tonight, at the earliest.

Weather permitting, it will travel from Elk County to Route 66 in Forest County, to Route 322 in Clarion County, and then into Venango County.

From there, it is expected to travel on Route 62 in Venango County to Route 173 in Mercer County to Interstate 80 as part of a more than 400-mile journey across the state.

The load will move as a rolling slowdown using two traffic lanes that will result in traffic stoppages and travel delays.

The majority of the transport, currently scheduled to be completed Saturday, will take place during nighttime hours.
