A third piece of equipment is about to make its way down our highways.
 
Starting on Sunday night (Feb.10), a 728-tonne, 48-metre-long piece of petrochemical equipment called a polypropylene reactor will be hauled from Edmonton to the Industrial Heartland.
 
The move will begin around 9 p.m. when the reactor will be transported from Cessco to a staging area at Highways 14 and 21, arriving around 5 a.m. on Monday (Feb.11).
 
From there, the oversized load will continue its journey at 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday (Feb.12) and arrive in Lamont at 5 p.m.
 
Then, the final trek will take place on Wednesday (Feb.13), when it's expected to arrive on site around 1 p.m.
 
At 12 metres tall and 10 metres wide, the load will use the entire width of a two-lane highway, including the shoulder.
 
Full route:
- Exit Cessco yard at 100 Street and 75 Avenue and travel east.
- South on 99 Street to 63 Avenue; east on 63 Avenue to 91 Street.
- South on 91 Street to 51 Avenue; east on 51 Avenue to Roper Road.
