Eastbound and down through Newtontown

A trucker moved a wide, tall, and heavy load eastbound on U.S. Highway 190 and approached the Newton Courthouse Square where he had to gently make a 90 degree right turn to get the large cooler, or industrial radiator, to its destination.

Highway 190 is a major east/west travel route and carries a large amount of truck traffic.

Currently, plans are for Interstate 14 to be built from Central Texas to Augusta, Georgia and will pass through or very close to Jasper. If that happens, much of the east west traffic will then pass through the new roadway.
