Chief Phillips says to Report Trucks going down Neighborhoods Streets During Bridge Closure
Bridge work is scheduled to start on 9-12-2017 on the Washington St. bridge. Officials expect the bridge to be out for approximately 60 days. Detour all semi-truck traffic to Drexel Road from the south and down SR 114 to Drexel Road from the north.
Signage is in place to limit truck traffic on NON-TRUCK routes. Only local traffic should be north of Drexel and west of Cullen St. All area manufactures are encouraged to notify all truck traffic of this detour. Citations will be written for truck route violations. Multiple tickets have already been issued today.
All citizens are encouraged to contact the Rensselaer Police Department at 866-7611 or 866-7602 to report violations. Please describe the truck (color of cab and trailer), any markings on the trailer, location of violation and direction of travel.
