Illinois Lets Big Loads On Roads For Sandy Relief

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois transportation officials are allowing larger loads on state roads to help with emergency relief after Hurricane Sandy.

Illinois Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider says her authorization is effective immediately. It applies to loads up to 14-feet wide and 100-feet long. The loads can travel on state routes and interstates.

State officials say it will let emergency responders and relief aides transport materials to the hard-hit East Coast more efficiently. The temporary authorization in Illinois lasts until Nov. 30.
