SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Another "Super Load" is traveling through Shreveport this week and authorities warn it could cause some travel delays.

Edwards Moving and Rigging will begin moving a very tall Cold Box from The Port of Caddo-Bossier to Eastman Chemical in Longview, Texas on Friday.

The convoy will average 1 mph each day for three days, according to the Department of Transportation and Development (DOTD).

The transporter will have one truck pulling and one truck pushing the combined weight of 539,000 pounds.

Officials say the operation will have multiple utility and electric companies raising wires, along with 10-12 police officers assisting.

Motorists are encouraged to avoid the transport route if possible.

This "super load" is much like the one transported in July 2015, and will travel the same route.
