Smoother Sailing This Time for Heavyload Transport on Route 281


Just like the last time, it was another beautiful day when a massive nearly 200,000 pound transport headed towards Albany, NY passed through Cortland County again yesterday, September 15th.

This time, the move was quick as tree trimming wasn’t required. The last time the transport came through the area tree trimming was required on trees alongside Route 281 in Homer, which resulted in heavy traffic delays and a mess.

The transportation company responsible for moving the reported condenser built by Graham Engineering Answers, for a nuclear submarine was Miller Transfer from Rootstown, Ohio.

New York State Police assisted Miller Transfer along Route 281 clearing traffic out of the way. It is believed that this same reported condenser originally came from Batavia, NY.

Power lines were raised to help the transport move with assistance from National Grid.
