Massive Haul Creates Headache for San Angelo Drivers
SAN ANGELO, TX-- A two million pound transformer being transported by an 18-wheeler slowed traffic on Arden Road Friday morning.
The haul is being transported to Arden Road and Farm-to-Market Road 2288.
Police say the truck had to stop to widen the tires in order to safely distribute its weight and cross a bridge on the frontage road of Loop 306 near Bryant.
After the truck slowly crosses the bridge it will stop again to put the tires back to normal.
Police advise that drivers avoid the 700 block of West 7th Street for the next hour and avoid the frontage roads for "the next couple of hours."
