how wind turbines get from where they are made to where they are deployed

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/23/business/energy-environment/23turbine.html?hpw

As you might expect:

(a) it's not cheap (low six figures)
(b) it messes with stuff -- damage to the road, overpasses (if planned poorly), maybe people (especially if other drivers screw up and hit the trucks doing the transporting)
(c) it might be cheaper to transport by train than by truck
(d) we really should be making this stuff in the US
