Montana Department Transportation plans to issue permit for megaload


HELENA, Mont. - The Montana Department of Transportation has confirmed with NBC Montana that the state plans to issue a road permit to one of the Morgan Omega megaloads currently in Idaho.

Officials say the permit will allow the rig parked on Highway 93 near Lost Trail Pass to travel to Bonner before another permit will be required.

Travel is not allowed on weekends. The earliest officials say the rig could cross the state line is Sunday night at 10 p.m., and that's only if weather permits.
