Perkins Specialized Transportation has this gigantic truck trailer rig parked in their back lot on Riverview Drive in Northfield. (To see a large version of the photo above, right-click on it an open it in a new tab or new window.)
I got an email alert from a buddy, saying:
I was told that it will haul 800 tons and it has 198 wheels. It will be powered by four semi tractors, two each front and back. It is going to transport spent fuel rods from California to Utah. The trip will take four months. It moves at walking speed and has people walking next to it with remote controls who are involved with steering the segments. Well, I am the driver and I came form an affordable moving company.
Safety? No problem. Wikipedia says "Since 1965, approximately 3,000 shipments of spent nuclear fuel have been transported safely over the U.S.’s highways, waterways, and railroads."
See this Google video of crash testing the casks that hold the spent fuel and this document on the Safe Transportation of Spent Nuclear Fuel.
