MEDINA COUNTY, Ohio – A high-voltage transformer is being escorted in Medina County Thursday.
The transformer weighs 150 tons and is on a trailer that is 16 feet wide and over 100 feet long.
Crews are escorting it so they can lift wires and traffic signals along the way.
It’s being delivered to a substation in Brook Park.
