Maine wind farm causes traffic disaster!

Guess [url=http://www.bangornews.com/news/t/midcoast.aspx?articleid=140090&zoneid=1... was quite a show yesterday in Searsport, some friends of mine used the detour, not an easy spot on Route 1 to detour around.

I wish them luck in this venture. I only have one question. From all the photos I have seen, why was he (apparently) turning left onto Route 1?

In the spring, the company unloaded 84 turbine blades manufactured in Brazil, each 125 feet long and weighing 15,000 pounds, from a ship at Mack Point. They were delivered by truck to Mars Hill.

The 82-foot-tall center and 98-foot-tall top tower sections, manufactured in Canada, were to be shipped by rail or truck to the Mars Hill site. The bottom sections are too wide at their base for rail shipment and so were brought by ship to Mack Point from a port on the St. Lawrence Seaway.

The electrical generators, each weighing 60 tons, manufactured in Florida, were to be shipped by rail from Pensacola to Aroostook County.

Silly question. Could BIW have made any of these parts?
