County leaders approved a proposal to add some additional security to the Eastern Sierra Transit motor pool.
Last Tuesday, Interim Public Works Director Doug Wilson said there is funding available through the Local Transportation Commission to construct security lighting and fencing at ESTAâ€™s headquarters at the county-operated Eastern Sierra Regional Airport.
The board approved a proposal in February that would have provided the lighting, however, with a fast approaching grant deadline for the funding, no bids were submitted for the project.
A massive truck hauling spent nuclear machinery will be passing through Inyo County on a 21-day journey from San Onofre to Clive, Utah. The super load measures 399 feet long, 20 feet wide and more than 16 feet tall with 200 or so tires, consisting of a trailer weighing more than one million pounds and three trucks.
The loads are reportedly the heaviest in California history. This trip is the first of four scheduled for this year.
