The Routes the Nukes Take

Nuclear Transport Map.jpg
Here's a scary bit of info for you.  It's especially scary for me since one of the plants is right in my home town.  Heck I could even tell you where it's located… but then I'd have to… well you get the idea.
I was completely stunned when I came across this article that lists the routes used by trucks transporting cargo for nuclear uses.
While you probably don't think about it… well until  you think about it, those parts & materials have got to go somewhere.  And they have to get there too right?  So it only makes sense that the feds are spending 250 million a year to make sure all gets there without incident.
This is one of those geek things that is so very cool while being so very scary all at the same time...
