I caught up with the 340 ton boulder on its way to LACMA while it was stopped at Figueroa and Florence, its final pit stop. A bit of info on how it’s being transported:
A transporter has been custom built for the project. The transporter is roughly 260 feet long and 32 feet wide. The large size of the transporter enables the weight of the rock to be distributed over 196 wheels, in such a way as to prevent road damage. Transportation will occur only at night over 11 nights and the transporter will travel down a pre-determined route at about 5–8 miles per hour.
