ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

More huge equipment is about to be trucked through south Georgia, disrupting traffic.

A couple of weeks ago, two super loads made arrived at Albany's Procter and Gamble plant after a long trip from the Port of Brunswick. The machinery is part of a new biomass power plant being built at P&G.

Three more oversized loads will begin the same trip Thursday. Once they arrive, three other super-sized will later be trucked from Brunswick to the Albany plant.

The trucks are scheduled to leave the Port of Brunswick at 9 a.m. (load one), 9:30 a.m. (load two) and 10 a.m. (load three) Thursday. Travel time is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Depending on traffic conditions, the convoy may reach Albany on Thursday; if not, it is expected to arrive Friday.
