FAIRFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - An oversized load is slowing down drivers in Butler County.
The load is a 27,000 pound gross fiberglass tanker measuring 170 feet long, 22 feet wide and 19 feet high.
It's on the move from Fairfield to the Ohio River.
The transport only travels about 5 miles an hour, so getting stuck behind will certainly slow you down.
It stopped for the night at State Route 73 near State Route 4 and will pick up again Wednesday morning at 9:00 am.
The planned route for Wednesday is: west on SR 73 to south SR 177 to west SR 130 to Mormon Road, then to west SR 129 to south U.S. 27 to west SR 126 to south SR 128 to east U.S. 50.
After transport through several streets in North Bend, the transport will arrive at a barge docked near Southside Avenue, Cincinnati.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol and Butler County Sheriff's Department will assist along the way. ODOT suggests you find an alternate route if you travel those roads because it does expect congestion and delays.
