PORTLAND, Oregon — The Oregon Department of Transportation says an oversized load is resuming its slow trek from Baker City to Idaho.

The Idaho Statesman reports (http://is.gd/7guHrl) the 357,636-pound load has spent two days parked on the side of the highway near Richland because of bad weather. It is scheduled to start moving Saturday night to cross the state line over the Snake River.

The equipment takes up two lanes and travels at about 10 miles per hour. ODOT says drivers traveling on Oregon Highway 86 should be prepared for flaggers, pilot cars and delays of up to 20 minutes. The load will be parked off the highway by 6 a.m. to reduce the impact on daytime traffic.

The load does not contain hazardous materials, fuels or liquids.
