The truck will be escorted by police and other vehicles when it moves from Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York to a barge, and then from the barge to Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois.

The ring, which will capture muons in a magnetic field, must be transported in one piece, and moved flat to avoid undue pressure on the superconducting cable inside.

This map shows the route the Muon g-2 ring will take from Brookhaven National Laboratory in New York to the barge that will bring it to Illinois. The ring will be transported on a truck that will move no faster than 10 miles per hour, and rolling roadblocks will be used to close portions of the road as the truck moves through.
