Commercial vehicle hauling 1st of 4 extra large “super loads” heads out this weekend

Published:

One of several extra large “super loads” will begin its journey to central Ohio on Sunday. 

The load will leave Adams County, Ohio on Sunday, June 16th and will arrive at the new Intel plant in New Albany some time next week. 

According to 10 WBNS, the load is one of four air processors, called a cold box, heading to the plant. It is used in the chip manufacturing process, and weighs 916,000 pounds and measures in at 20 feet wide and 23 feet tall.  

The load is expected to have a considerable impact on traffic as it moves through the state during its week-long journey. Drivers are advised to avoid the route taken by the load when possible. The planned route can be found here. 

The load is expected to draw spectators due to its sheer size, but ODOT urges these viewers to stay out of the way of the commercial vehicles and work crews, and obey any instructions if issued. 

It is unclear when the other three extra large super loads will depart, but there are reportedly 12 “super loads” headed to the plant in total.
