Trucks in downtown Newport
For the second day in a row on Tuesday, an 18 wheeler got stuck on the railroad tracks in downtown Newport. Both trucks were trying to get around the construction work on East Broadway. Both incidents blocked downtown traffic as well as the railroad tracks, for some time. So what efforts are being made to prevent similar incidents,? I asked Newport Chief of Police Maurice Shults. “There has been all kinds of signage put in place by the utility and state detour routes. In addition, my guys have been issuing citations to those truckers who fail to obey the traffic control signs.”
