Lewis & Clark would never have explored this country if the enviros were running the show. Maybe the protestors should get on their bicycles and go back to there caves

Most of the complainers hurl millions of tons of Japan made tin over the same route,and they sent trillions of $. to Japan for the privilege.

Uh-huh!!! All the money in the world...for the big oil companies! (and let us not leave out the monies that more than likely exchanged hands "under the table" to get this pushed through!!) Just saying.

The highway was biult to handle public and commertial traffic. I'm sure the outfitters and guides cutomers get to the river on these roads as do there food, fuel, etc. We have a seaport in Lewiston that will handle these loads and the roads will also

Alaska pipeline, etc. was to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, reduce prices, as was gulf oil production. The oil goes elsewhere, results are returned to us and we pay more for them.

If the megaloads were 'miracle cancer-cure machinery' destined for a childrens' hospital... would the stupid tree-huggers still be attempting to sabotage its transport? Their malarky is simply a futile game in their own self-serving political agenda.

They got hung up and caused an hour delay because of an "extremely sharp corner" between Greer and Kamiah. Must have been those mischievous protesters put that corner there. What are they going to do when confronted with a real sharp corner???

There is no net gain for ID or MT in this dangerous, destructive project that will cost taxpayers more than it will gain. The supporters remind me of children who can be convinced that a nickel is worth more than a dime because it is bigger.

People should support this project. They already have made utility upgrades along this route. They are not carrying any hazardous material, and will help reduce our reliance for forein oil. Montana contractors will benefit and keep people employed.
