Sound Off: I have observed large dump trucks traveling on Ninth Street between Iowa Street and Emery Road. Is that legal?
Megan Gilliland, the city’s communications manager, provided this answer: The city’s established truck routes are 23rd, Sixth and Iowa streets, which trucks must use when travelling through Lawrence. If the destination is not on a truck route, trucks are required to travel from the designated truck route using the most appropriate and most direct route to their destination. The truck in question may be using Iowa as its truck route and then traveling on Ninth Street to reach its destination. All trucks are required to adhere to legal load limits.
