Petition to Deny Permits for Transport of Massively Oversized Equipment on U.S. Highway 12

 

We, the undersigned, strongly oppose the issuance of permits to Exxon Mobil/Imperial Oil, Conoco Phillips and other corporations to transport massively oversized, road-obstructing industrial equipment on U.S. Highway 12.

 

These transports would degrade the intrinsic qualities of the Northwest Passage Scenic Byway and All-American Road; impede the travel of locals and visitors for pleasure, recreation, business, and emergencies; potentially damage the road and bridges and accrue costs to American taxpayers; pose a serious threat to a world-class fishery and wildlife corridor; and severely impact the single growing industry of the U.S. 12 corridor: travel/tourism.

 

Therefore, we the undersigned petition the Idaho Transportation Department and Governor Otter to deny permits for the transport of any and all such massively oversized, road-obstructing loads.
