A Monster in the Mountains

By The Adams County Record staff

Travelers driving the narrow twists and turns of U.S. Highway 12 this past weekend between Kooskia and Lolo Pass were probably amazed to meet a truck hauling a 185,000 pound, 95-foot-long, 22-foot-wide, 17-foot-high pipe.

The Selway Corporation is taking the pipe from Stevensville, Montana to Snoqualmie Falls, Wash. The monster pipe will divide water into two channels for a hydro project at Snoqualmie Falls.
