LOWELL - More than 100 people turned out to protest the Lowell Mountain Wind Project, stop trucks loaded with turbine parts from entering the Green Mountain Power construction site, and make a statement about future industrial wind projects in the state.
Monday morning, when the first oversized truckload of the day approached the turn to the construction site in Lowell, protesters moved in front of the truck and stopped it in its path for about two hours. Many protesters said blocking the road was not part of the original plan, however.
