According to Ronnie Smith, owner of Smith Specialized Logistics, it is one of the biggest moves by tractor-trailers ever in the Houston area, requiring a caravan of more than 30 Texas state troopers and 20 cherry-picker trucks to block traffic.
Two flatbed trucks will be carrying the two crates. The first is 56-feet long, 24-feet wide and 27- feet high. The second is 30-feet long, 16-feet wide and 24-feet high.
The 108-mile move is scheduled to begin today, August 2, at 7:00 p.m. at W-Industries in northwest Houston, where the drill ship was manufactured. It will conclude at Bayport Terminal on August 6. – Mahoney also wrote in his article.
