Rockland Truck Route Implemented

WEST NYACK, N.Y. – Rockland County Executive Ed Day joined residents of Doscher Avenue in West Nyack to mark the implementation of the Rockland County Truck Route.

The truck route will allow the county to restrict heavy trucks to roadways able to handle that traffic. It will also enable the county to post warnings on roads that are not part of the truck route and do not allow trucks.

"This has been a decade-long process," Day said. "We are putting up the first sign right here in recognition of the work that you, the people who live here, have done to draw attention to this issue."

The County completed a Truck Route Study in 2007 and has been working since then with the state and the Town of Clarkstown.

"We are happy to implement the DOT-approved truck route in Clarkstown, which should be an improvement for the neighborhood," said Clarkstown Supervisor George Hoehmann.

Day also thanked Rockland County Highway Superintendent Charles Vezzetti, who has been working for years to designate a truck route within the county.

Vezzetti and his staff have started installing signs indicating which roads are designated for truck traffic and which roads ban such traffic unless making a local delivery.

The route will be fully marked by the spring.
