Super Load Move to be Completed Tonight in North Central PA

A super load move through several north central Pennsylvania counties is scheduled to be completed tonight, Monday, February 20, in north central Pennsylvania.

The move originated from Waverly NY, and is being transported to the Moxie Power Plant east of Berwick in Luzerne County.

The load is classified as a super load due to its weight and dimensions. It weighs more than 900,000 pounds, is 345 feet long (including carrier), 20 feet wide and 18 feet high.

This is the sixth and final day of the move with all moves made during the night between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

The load currently is parked at the PennDOT Lime Ridge stockpile on Route 11 in South Centre Township, Columbia County. It will travel tonight on Route 11 north through Berwick to Mingle Inn Road then to the Moxie Power Plant entrance in Salem Township, Luzerne County, a distance of about 15 miles.

Due to the width of load, traffic will be unable to pass it in either direction on two-lane highways. There will be areas where the super load will pull over to allow vehicles to pass. This may be done with the assistance of flaggers.
