Multiple pieces of  historic importance from NASA are slowly moving through Clay County.  

The transport started at 9:00 AM today and will take hours to complete.  The Clay County Sheriffs Office will be escorting various shuttle pieces from NASA and would like to let drivers know to expect delays along the transport route.

The convoy began in Green Cove Springs on Hwy 17 traveling North to CR 220 in Fleming Island.  From there it will travel west to College Dr. to Blanding Blvd. in Orange Park.  The convoy will head South on Blanding through Middleburg to SR 100 West in Keystone Heights.  It will end at the Keystone Heights Airport where the items will be on display at Wings of Dreams Aviation Museum.
