The stoplight at the intersection of Jefferson Street and Colfax Avenue is raised Thursday to make room for an oversize load, which was escorted through Wadena by Minnesota Highway Patrol. Bill Hoium, dispatcher for the patrol office in Detroit Lakes, said the transport was planned in advance and it is common for workers to have to move stoplights to make room for oversize loads. Thursday's transport, which Hoium said was permitted to Northern States Transportation, Inc., was traveling from Browns Valley, Minn., to Cloquet, Minn. Photo by Dain Sullivan, Pioneer Journal
