Foul weather blocks megaload in Eastern Oregon

PENDLETON — With just a day of travel and about 40 miles covered, a megaload of refinery equipment intended for the tar sands oil region of western Canada is parked in Eastern Oregon, now waiting out a storm.

The load is about 450 tons, counting both the equipment and transportation rigs.

The East Oregonian reported the load remained south of Pendleton Thursday night.

After protests at the Port of Umatilla delayed it a day, the load reached the parking spot Tuesday.

Because it's so large and slow, and blocks two-lane highways, it's allowed to move only at night, pulling over at intervals to allow traffic to pass.

The Oregon forecast called for a winter storm to last through the first part of the weekend, with travel hazardous along the megaload's route.
