Big-city traffic jam finds its way to Liberal PDF Print E-mail

A sign in the foreground ironically requests CDL drivers while two semis loaded with wind turbine tower pieces sit on the shoulder of the eastbound lane of U.S. Highway 54 at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Six-Points intersection. Apparently, their lead pilot vehicle had recommended getting in the eastbound lane to go around the traffic lights at the intersection, but then realized the rigs may still not clear the lights at the upper arm of the beams. It was then that the controller had to stop all eastbound traffic while the two semis maneuvered their loads off the roadway and onto the shoulder. Daily Leader photos/Larry Phillips

RIGHT: As the two trucks position themselves off the roadway and onto the eastbound shoulder, vehicles lined up on Pancake Boulevard were able to start through the intersection around 1:20 p.m.
