281-foot tank moves through area
Crews move a 281-foot tank that weighs 575,000 pounds and is 18 feet wide and 15-1/2 feet tall through East Central Illinois. The tank entered Champaign County on U.S. 150 and move west to I-74, using the University Avenue entrance. The load is so large that a tractor is pulling the trailer while another pushes from behind. State transportation officials say the final destination of the huge pressure vessel is a location in Missouri.
