‘Mega Move’ post­poned again


PORT DE­POSIT — The move of a 650-ton piece of equip­ment from Bain­bridge to the Mary­land line has been post­poned once again, ac­cord­ing to Port De­posit town hall.

Greg Price, spokesman for Su­por Heavy Haul, LLC based in New Jer­sey, said the new date for the move is Mon­day, March 19.

Orig­i­nally the move of the equip­ment — bound for Wild­cat Point Gen­er­a­tion Sta­tion on Route 222 near the Penn­syl­va­nia line in Conowingo — was to hap­pen Feb. 27.

Weather has not worked in fa­vor of the project, which Price said last month needs two con­sec­u­tive days of dry weather for safe trans­port. Dates switched to Feb. 28, then March 4 and March 14. There was an­other snow and rain­fall Mon­day night into Tues­day in the travel area. How­ever, the cur­rent fore­cast calls for day­time tem­per­a­tures in the up­per 40s to low 50s with sun­shine Thurs­day through Mon­day.

The equip­ment will move 5 to 6 mph along Tome High­way with timed de­lays along the route for traf­fic. There will be de­tours in place. The trans­former will head to Penn­syl­va­nia by the end of the day where it will con­tinue its trip, swing­ing back into Ce­cil County along Route 222 north, ar­riv­ing at Wild­cat Point.
