Kankakee: Stuck truck mucks up traffic  

Credit:  By Lee Provost, The Daily Journal, daily-journal.com 30 September 2011 ~~

A semitruck, hauling a 160-foot long wind turbine arm from Fort Madison, Iowa, to Ontario, Canada, made an unscheduled stop in the middle of East Court Street in downtown Kankakee Thursday afternoon.

At about 1:45 p.m., Anderson Haulage Limited trucker Mike Dolliver was following directions for oversized loads provided by the Illinois Department of Transportation when he suddenly found himself at an impasse.

The route, mapped out by IDOT, instructed him to turn southbound onto South Indiana Avenue.

The problem?

His truck – measuring 197 feet from its front bumper to the end of the turbine hanging off the end of the trailer – could not make that turn. Nor would the truck have been able to make the upcoming turn at South Indiana and East River Street only a few blocks ahead, with the ultimate goal of taking East River Street to South Schuyler Avenue and then down to Interstate 57 south of town….
