Ask NOW: Trucks keep getting stuck under bridge

Aug. 13, 2012

Is there a rumor you've heard that you would like to track down? Is there something in the community that needs to get fixed? Mary Malahy explains some of the mysteries of life in the Tosa area.

What can be done about trucks hitting bridge?

Issue: A reader wrote to me because he has seen two rental moving trucks slam into the bridge over Swan Boulevard, requiring fire and rescue squads to pry the trucks from under the bridge. He wants to know if the city has any plans to post additional warning signs.

Status: Bill Porter, director of public works, said the city put up additional signs a few months ago and added warning signs on the bridge.

"I don't see how you could possibly sign it better than it is signed now," he said.

The bridge is not a city bridge and is under control of the railroad.
