A 233,000-pound load came to an unexpected halt Saturday, Feb. 9 on Highway 34 in Grand Island, Nebraska. The Nebraska State Patrol said the trailer carrying the load broke. Highway 34 was closed for more than 24 hours.
When you are 233,000 lbs and your trailer breaks it doesnt leave many travel options available. This is causing a westbound Highway 34 travel disruption between Stuhr & Shady Bend Road in GI. #heavy #stuck @NebraskaDOT pic.twitter.com/35UPCEJSYc— NSP Troop C (@NSP_TroopC) February 9, 2019
