Cassiar snafu

Posted: Wednesday, September 10, 2003

A double-wide manufactured home being transported by McLeese Lake Acres Mobile Home Sales of McLeese Lake, British Columbia, Canada, holds up Cassiar Highway traffic last week at the Todagin Creek bridge south of Iskut, British Columbia. It took about two hours for the home to clear the remote one-lane Bailey bridge and allow traffic to pass once again.

The moving crew and passersby laid boards on the bridge deck to raise the trailer's tires a few inches so the bottom of the house could clear the side rails. The home was destined for Delta Junction, Alaska. If the house had not cleared the bridge, the alternate route would have required a trip for the dwelling of more than 1,300 extra miles.
