A COKE AND A MILE: Motorists traveling in the Edmonton area and east duringthe next six months can expect to experience traffic delays on Alberta's major highways leading to Fort McMurray. The first of Suncor Energy's four coke drums hit the road during daylight hours on Jan. 6. Measuring 33 feet wide and 334 feet long from the front of the tractor to the rear of the trailer, the drum was accompanied by an RCMP escort and four pilot cars (two in front and two in back), and took ten days to reach its destination, north of Fort McMurray.
