A 729,000-pound shipment will make its way from Dublin to Savannah this week and major road delays are expected.

The 290-foot long, 20-foot wide and over 15-foot tall rig configuration began its route on Tuesday evening and two more mega shipments will make their way down to the coast b the end of the week.

Each move will take at least three nights and follow the same routes.

Six Georgia State Patrol officers with blue lights and marked cars will accompany the dual-lane rig to pace traffic, when so warranted by the traffic control. Traffic will be slow or even stopped at some points due to the excessive size of the shipment.

The mega load will also feature moving message boards warning of traffic interruptions at key bridges and/or intersections. Normal travel speed is 45 mph but slows to 5 mph when crossing certain bridge structures. Motorists should exercise extreme caution in its vicinity and follow instructions from the law enforcement escorts.
