Officials ask that people not try to follow the superload as it would cause more traffic delays.

The superload truck is 136 feet long and weighs 150 tons. It will travel approximately 25-30 miles per hour.

The superload will move as a rolling slowdown using two traffic lanes, which will result in traffic stoppages and travel delays. Southern Pines Trucking, Inc. of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania is transporting the load.

A superload truck also made its way to the Valley in January 2022.
