As the COVID-19 outbreak spreads across the United States, regular travel and transportation is restricted in many jurisdictions. The border is now closed to Canada, except for essential travel, including the transportation of goods. We might continue to see travel restrictions tighten as things progress, but for our truckers, they are working hard to maintain the transport of goods.
After a loaded semi trailer flips over and blocking Northbound I-5 just South of Seattle, WA in Tukwila, #teamprotow called with their incident response team to clear the highway during a busy Monday morning commute. Working closely with the Washington State Patrol and the Washington State Department of Transportation quick clearance program, the highway was reopened for all lanes of travel in hour of great teamwork. Utilizing a heavy duty rotating crane style wrecker along with additional incident response vehicles and a team of certified recovery personnel, the load of milk and dairy products was quickly cleaned with minimal lane closure.
