    Thought some on here may enjoy seeing this.

    This Thursday, Dec. 7, motorists should be prepared for delays travelling northbound on Highway 63.

    A large piece of industrial equipment weighing 483,000 kilograms and carried by a trailer with 352 wheels is being moved north. Due to its large size and weight, it will only travel at 60 km/h and will use the entire width of the highway, including the shoulder.

    For the most up-to-date road information and traffic delays call 511. Read the provincial news release for more: Super-heavy load to affect travel in northeast Alberta

    Mammoet is doing the hauling.

    Hopefully this link works, I'm not really sure how to link on here.
