    en route

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence from an English text?

    “Picture with me, if you will, a farmer driving a large open-bed truck filled with sugar beets en route to the sugar refinery.”

    en route = on or along the way

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Yes, exactly. When someone is en route, they are in the process of travelling.
