A 'super load' transport will slow traffic significantly around Shreveport at various times throughout the weekend.

Louisiana DOTD says the load measures 275 feet long by 25 feet high and 18 feet wide. It will travel from the Port of Shreveport-Bossier to Longview, Texas, at a maximum of 5 miles per hour. Spokeswoman Cindy Dorfner describes it as a "very large cold box."

Utility and electric companies, along with law enforcement, will be part of the transport to ensure safety in the area.

Motorists should expect major slowdowns and heavy congestion during the movement. DOTD advises you to avoid the route during the scheduled transport times.
