Heaviest Load Ever on Alberta Roads Travels Through Tofield

The heaviest load to ever hit Alberta’s highways started its four day crawl Sunday night, and was anticipated to go through Tofield yesterday

The biggest load to ever hit Alberta’s highways started its four day crawl Sunday night, and was anticipated to make it's way through Tofield yesterday.

Assistant C.A.O. for the Town of Tofield, Jeff Edwards, says that it is quite the sight to behold.

The first piece that is currently being hauled is slated to take four days to complete from Edmonton to the Industrial Heartland just outside of Fort Saskatchewan.

Drivers are reminded the load will be moving below the posted speed limit and may pull over periodically; drivers traveling behind the load will face delays.

Drivers are also reminded to watch for accompanying guide vehicles and flag people, which will control traffic and enhance safety. 

In some spots along the route, the load will be traveling against the flow of traffic, escorted by guide vehicles for safety. Lanes will be blocked off accordingly.

It is scheduled to head out from Lamont to it's final destination tomorrow.
