A 436,000 pound chamber is making its way along Oklahoma highways to the Port of Catoosa.

When mounted on a trailer, the 100-feet long Contained Burn Chamber becomes a 500,000 pound, 180-feet long, 27.5 feet tall load.

It's being transported to the Port of Catoosa where it will then head to Louisiana by barge.

The chamber is traveling on Highway 123 south of Bartlesville and continue on to Highway 11 before stopping in Skiatook for the night.

On Thursday, the crew will take Highway 20 to Highway 75 and exit 36th Street North. They will take 36th into Catoosa.

The crew expects to be at the Port Friday.

The chamber will be used to destroy more than 15 million pounds of deteriorating M6 military explosives.
