JAMMIN’ ON THE HIGHWAY—



But this “wide load” did it right last week coming through east Rockdale on US 79, with a bucket truck to deal with overhanging limbs and utility lines. The previous day a different load, bound for a different location, toppled a power line on west US 79. (See police report, page 3A). Just what was the load pictured here? Onlookers in the stacked-up traffic guessed an oil tank headed for South Texas. It was actually a water tank bound for a destination near Bastrop.
