The Skull Valley Goshute Tribe of Utah plans to store up to 44,000 tons of highly radioactive nuclear waste on its reservation.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has said the storage site will be safe. But what worries many is how the waste will get there.

Critics say the tribe hasn't done enough to ensure transportation plans and routes are safe. The Department of Energy points out that there has been no major accident involving nuclear waste.
