Jammed up on I-75 near Findlay?

Superload Coming Through

On Thursday, July 18, the reactor head cover for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant will pass through the Toledo area on its way to its final destination. At 9:00 a.m., the superload will enter Ohio from Michigan on U.S. 23. The travel route is as follows: U.S. 23, Interstate 475/U.S. 23 south to Interstate 75, north on I-75 to State Route 795, east on S.R. 795 to Interstate 280, north on I-280 to State Route 2, Navarre Avenue, east on S.R. 2 to the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant near Oak Harbor.

Motorists should avoid these routes if at all possible. The speed of the superload and its associated escort will be very slow, even reduced to "walking speed" as it crosses bridges on the route. Motorists will encounter extremely lengthy delays.

The load itself is 18 feet wide and weighs 190,000 pounds. It is unlikely, given the size of the load itself, that passing by motorists on the various interstates will be possible, and that traffic may be stopped at various times and locations on S.R. 2 to allow the superload to proceed safely.
