Foes Appeal Hearing Officer Ruling On Megaloads

A group of north Idaho residents has asked a hearing judge to reconsider his ruling in favor of ExxonMobil’s plans to haul dozens of oversized loads of equipment along U.S. Highway 12.

Last month, hearing officer Duff McKee handed the oil company a victory when he recommended that the Idaho Transportation Department issue travel permits for the shipments.

ExxonMobil wants to haul the giant shipments of oil refinery equipment from Lewiston, into Montana en route to the oil sands in southern Canada.

But opponents say the travel plan threatens public safety and the environment.

On Monday, they filed a petition asking McKee to reconsider his decision, claiming it’s based on flawed law and facts.

Exxon’s shipments are some of the heaviest and widest loads ever approved for travel on state highways.
