Change in Designated Truck Routes

Post Date:08/08/2016
Downtown traffic should see less congestion beginning August 29. Large trucks will no longer be allowed in the downtown area, unless they have a destination.

City Council members voted in July to change the local truck routes by prohibiting truck traffic on Andrews Highway between Second Street and 42nd Street as well as Kermit Highway between Andrews Highway and County Road West. (Click here to view a copy of the ordinance.)

This change should not only alleviate traffic congestion in the downtown area, but also prolong the structural integrity of the roadways and provide safer pedestrian passage.

Designated truck routes in the City are:
• County Road West
• Andrews Highway (Highway 385) north of 42nd Street (Highway 191) and south of Second Street
• Grandview
• 42nd Street (Highway 191)
• Kermit Highway (Spur 450) west of County Road West

Designated routes for trucks carrying hazardous material are Loop 338 and Interstate 20.
