According to Berard, there will be a convoy of bucket trucks, support vehicles, and police escorts directing traffic near the load. The move is scheduled to start at 08:30 and should last approximately 3 hours.

"We ask for public caution and patience as we transport this cargo through the city," Berard Transportation says.
