Boiler Blocks Traffic on Lovers Lane
If you were traveling westbound on Lovers Lane around 1 p.m. today, you probably experienced an unusual delay. That’s because an 18-wheeler hauling a ginormous Hurst Boiler had to be escorted by University Park Police.
According to city spokesman Steve Mace, the driver called 911 when he realized his load was too tall to safely pass under overhead power lines. UP Police responded, and helped the driver navigate a route that kept the power lines at bay.
