Oversized transport could cause delays
Inclement weather has delayed a Contractors Cargo Co. oversized load shipment. The company originally was scheduled to transport a 20-feet-wide load from Baggs, Wyo., to Colorado, which could have required brief lane closures.
However, weather delays have pushed back the transport to date to Thursday. The company will leave Baggs at about 7:30 a.m. and travel down SR13 to County Road 5. The shipment may cause “brief lane closures along the route,” Contractors Cargo Co. reported.
8:16 a.m. At Loaf ‘N Jug, police in Craig responded to a traffic stop. Craig police said a verbal warning was issued to a driver. Police in Craig responded to at least five additional traffic stops Friday.
