Competing rallies focus on megaloads

Thursday, January 27, 2011

A rally in support of megaload traffic on U.S. Highway 12 will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday on Lewiston’s Memorial Bridge.

Those looking to participate are asked to gather at 12:30 p.m. at Pepsi Park next to the bridge.

The pro-load rally, designed to support oversized loads scheduled to begin transport Tuesday from the Port of Lewiston to Billings, Mont., will coincide with an anti-load rally taking place at the same time and location.

Friends of the Clearwater, a Moscow-based environmental group, is sponsoring the anti-
megaload rally.
