Drivers through Sumas Prairie this morning should be prepared to come upon a large convoy of farm equipment making its way from Abbotsford to Chilliwack.

Prairie Coast Equipment is moving its fleet of equipment from its location on Sumas Way to its new facility in Chilliwack.

Twenty-five tractors pulling various implements will leave the business around 10 a.m. Friday morning, with an estimated arrival around noon in Chilliwack.

The convoy of vehicles will make its way down Vye Road before zig-zagging its way across east Abbotsford. The convoy will cross into Chilliwack at No. 3 road, and make its way across the Vedder Canal at the Keith Wilson bridge, according to branch manager Aubrey Friesen.

The company is moving to a seven-acre facility in Chilliwack. They had previously looked at several locations in Abbotsford, but was unable to find a suitable spot, Friesen said.
