CLARKSTON, WA - An update on megaload shipments that are now parked at the Port of Wilma.

The preliminary stages of a permit application are underway.
Transportation company Mammoet is waiting on word from the Idaho Transportation Department on whether they can take the pieces of large equipment through area highways. If permits are granted, the three oversized loads would travel from Lewiston, north to Coeur d'Alene on Highway-95 through Moscow to their destination of Montana.

"It would involve a temporary in both the east bound and west bound of Interstate 90," said ITD Coordinator Adam Rush. "The project involves some input in oversight from the Federal Highway Administration. And so they have a role in this as well."

Rush said it's too early to know if they'll approve the permits. If they are granted the megaloads should start moving in mid-January.
