A new truck route has been set up by TxDOT and the City of Odessa.

According to YourBasin.com, the route is to get truck traffic to avoid the city traffic since trucks have a harder time stopping quickly.

TxDOT and the city have set up signage on the route so that it can be easily accessed and used.

Most of the signs will be placed on Loop 338 while others will be on Business 20 and Interstate 20.
