BAKER CITY – (Release from the Oregon Department of Transportation) Expect 20 minutes delays along OR 86 (Baker-Copperfield Hwy.) during evenings of Sept. 22 and Sept. 26 to accommodate a 16-foot-wide, 180-foot-long, 416,300-pound load. The oversized freight (non-hazardous generator equipment) will move slowly (10-40 mph) down the center of highway at times, blocking both lanes.
