That bridge is very well marked. Driver needs a bit of retraining.
Tractor-trailer strikes overpass on Cedar Street

Well we all know that isn't the first time!
Maybe he saw a milk truck go down Cedar and figured he could too....... when they re-do Cedar street in a couple years,I hope these bridges are addressed(as in,make them 14' high)..... w/ these new plants going in on east end in the agricultural park,this may become a more common occurence than it already is. Harvester Ave. has tricky corners to navigate,especially w/ 53' trailers.....being that is the next street up from Cedar that goes to 63....of course,it really would help if DRIVERS OBEY HEIGHT SIGNS!!!!! If the state needs some extra money,all they need to do is set up some patrols near the Oakfield Rt.63 sinkhole(more like dip) that they have the road closed off for-the wheatfield to the south has a nice path worn down from vehicles going around barricades-state added more barricades-people just going around extra barricades now in the farmers fields.I even saw a LOADED tractor trailer go around it Tuesday(he was going to the USG plant).
I SAW THAT TRUCK I THOUGH HE WAS DELIVERING THAT BRIDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE ROLLED BACK PORTION ON THE TOP IS A LOW BRIDGE INDICATOR. IT SAVES THE DRIVER THE EFFORT OF GETTING OUT TO DO A BRIDGE CHECK. IF HE CAN SEE IT ROLL BACK IN HIS MIRRORS HE KNOWS THE BRIDGE IS TO LOW! SPACE AGE DEVICE SO THEY SAY!
His GPS "made" him do it. "But officer, my GPS told me to take this route!"
derp. a. lerp.
