The hydro dam gate will be hauled on a 173-foot-long truck and will take up two lanes of the highway. Two pilot cars will be leading the truck and three pilot cars will be at the rear.

“The load will enter Oregon on I-205 over the Glenn Jackson Bridge, heading towards southbound I-5. It will stop at 5 a.m. Wednesday at the Oak Grove rest stop along I-5. The truck will resume its journey at 10 p.m. Wednesday and is expected to reach California before 5 a.m. Thursday,” Oregon Live reported.
