Like a giant metal dinosaur, a massive tank was slowly moved through Alexandria Thursday morning.
According to Minnesota State Trooper Jesse Grabow, the 222,000 pound pressure tank was being moved from Texas to a chemical company in Chicago.
As the huge tank made a turn, traffic was temporarily stopped Thursday morning at the intersections of Highway 27 and 29 on Alexandria's south side.
