GROESBECK, Texas (KWTX) A big load and the convoy accompanying it was making a slow trip Friday through Central Texas.

The rig and trailer hauling the oversize load and its escorts were just north of Groesbeck late Friday morning preparing to head through Groesbeck on Ellis Street and then south on State Highway 14.

“Motorists in the area should expect delays while traveling north or south and at light-controlled intersections,” authorities said in a Facebook update.

Included in the group of vehicles accompanying tractor-trailer are bucket trucks, whose crews are raising power lines to make way for the load.
