Wide Load2

    Although it is common place to see huge loads pass through Viking on route to Fort McMurray, the size of the vessels being transported north is a continual source of amazement.

    Wide loads travel the Edmonton/Viking/ Fort McMurray corridor on an almost daily basis, however, every so often a super-wide load travels the route. Prior warnings of the movement of such a load is broadcast through various media outlets to advise motorists of the possibility of traffic delays.

    At noon on Thursday, June 17 another super- wide load inched its way through Viking en route  from Edmonton to Fort McMurray.

    Through a light rain, the huge load crossed the CN rail tracks and stopped  briefly on the side of the road before heading towards Two Hills.
