EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Crews will be moving a 941,840 pound deaerator from Plant McIntosh in Rincon to Plant Vogtle in Waynesboro this weekend.

The deaerator will move through the following counties:

  • Screven County on State Route 21, 73 and 24

Tranfer times will be from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 22 and Saturday, Feb. 23, weather permitting.

Drivers can expect traffic along these routes to be slow and even stopped at times due to the size of the load.

The mega load is two lanes wide so motorists should exercise extreme caution in its vicinity and follow instructions from the law enforcement escort.
