Biomass equipment move will close local roads Nov. 15

Nov 14, 2017

A biomass boiler, originally scheduled to go from Sprague Terminal in Searsport to the site of a new biomass plant in Searsmont two weeks ago, will leave Searsport at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 15, according to Searsport Selectman Dick Desmarais.

The piece of equipment weighs 346,000 pounds, and is 84 feet long and 21 feet tall. Because of its size and weight, the tractor-trailer carrying it will travel slowly along inland roads. The route will take it through Searsport, Swanville, Waldo, Morrill and Belmont on its way to the plant site adjacent to Robbins Lumber in Searsmont.

The move is expected to take six hours and will require temporary closure of several roads, in this order: Mt. Ephraim, Old County, Back Searsport, Swan Lake Avenue and Town House roads, as well as Route 131.
