WSU, UI students set megaloads presentations

April 23, 2011

MOSCOW – The potential effect of megaloads will be explored in presentations by Washington State University and University of Idaho graduate students at an event from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday at the 1912 Center at 412 E. Third St. in Moscow.

Videos, design visualizations and geographical models are among the tools the students will use as they explore questions such as: What would U.S. Highway 12 look like if becomes a permanent industrial corridor?

The work was done in the class “Northern Rocky Mountain Regional Landscape,” taught by Jolie Kaytes, a WSU associate professor of landscape architecture.

Imperial Oil has proposed sending more than 100 extra-big transports on U.S. 12.

The event is hosted by Friends of the Clearwater, WSU Department of Horticulture and Landscape Architecture, and the WSU Center for Civic Engagement.
