ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Officials say a very large oversized load will be traveling at very slow speeds on several highways across part of New Mexico the next couple of days.
    
The state Department of Transportation says the so-called "super load" will be escorted by state police as it travels Friday night, Saturday and Sunday from Texas to Albuquerque, with stops in Vaughn and Bernardo.
    
Highways that are part of the route include U.S. 380, U.S. 60 and Interstate 25.
    
Sandia National Laboratories spokesman Troy Rummler says the load consists of a large electrical transformer that will be used for Department of Energy research.
    
Albuquerque-based Sandia is a federal installation involved in the nation's nuclear weapons program and international nonproliferation efforts.
