Trucks over 40 feet in length are now prohibited from entering Franklin Street from Main to 9th Streets. “No truck” signs will be placed along the road to alert trucks of this restriction.
As the 9th St Corridor project progresses, the City has gotten more requests and complaints about trucks in the area. As we try to establish sod and amenities along 9th, it has become more apparent how large trucks utilize the area. Due to the configuration of the businesses on the east side of the railroad tracks, the Engineering Department doesn’t feel that restricting trucks completely from 9th Street is realistic at this time.
However, if large trucks are prevented from turning and maneuvering the side streets off of 9th and off of Main, it will help prevent trucks from running over signs and over the new sod that has been placed.
