Wide Loads running up Hwy97 at peak hours

What's with this?
I often wondered why they truck mobiles homes and modular homes at 7,8,9,am etc .
At busy times it causes the a holes of the roads to get impatient and pass/lane change dangerously etc

Why not earlier?

Wide loads are run according to their permit, usally meaning daylight hours only. Roughly 5.15 am to 5.30 am this time of year they'd be safe roll. They may have started their day at a location a long way from Kelowna.

Could be because of the Hwy construction which is going on from Hwy 33 north at night. I noticed a sign today that said no wide loads at night.
