Tanks for the Traffic Jam

A big rig monopolized major thoroughfares in Lexington and Richmond during Monday evening rush hour as it transported a piece of equipment for the chemical-destruction plant in Madison County. The 200-foot-long tractor-trailer carrying an empty 100-ton steel vessel arrived at Man o' War Boulevard in Lexington shortly before 4 p.m., nearly an hour earlier than expected, officials said. About 6 p.m. the truck arrived at Blue Grass Army Depot in Madison County, where the vessel will be installed in a plant that will destroy chemical weapons.
