7/11/17 No Thru Trucking

RAYMOND, NH  (July 11, 2017):

The Highway Safety Committee recently reviewed the “No Thru Trucking” ordinance due to feedback from area businesses and haulers. As a result of the research, we discovered the enabling statute had changed thus requiring additional research and steps to ensure our ordinance is up to date.

The Highway Safety Committee requested the Board of Selectmen temporarily suspend the “No Thru Trucking” for the following roads:

Main Street
Epping Street
Old Manchester Road
Wight Street

Last evening  the Board of Selectmen voted unanimously to temporarily suspend “No Thru Trucking” except for tractor trailers, which remain prohibited.  In the near future this will be revisited and will be posted on the BOS agenda.
