MILTON, Vt. (WCAX) - You may have seen an enormous transformer on the interstate this weekend.

That’s because Vermont Electric Power Company was moving the oversized “superload” that weighs close to 1 million pounds from Williamstown to Milton.

They say it is crucial to statewide electric grid reliability.

Drivers did see some delays Sunday on Interstate 89.

The transport was a collaboration of VTrans, VT State Police, VELCO and Bay Crane.
