Council approves large truck limits on several borough streets near Capital Logistics Center

Posted

Middletown Borough Council on Sept. 4 gave final approval to an ordinance intended to keep large trucks off several streets in town.

The ordinance bans trucks longer than 40 feet from sections of Wharton Avenue, West Roosevelt Avenue, Grandview Avenue and Spring Street.

The move followed complaints from residents about tractor-trailer trucks using their streets to get to the Capital Logistics Center warehousing complex north of Penn State Harrisburg.

Council also had a truck restriction study done by borough consulting engineers HRG.

The prohibition against trucks longer than 40 feet on Wharton Avenue runs from North Union Street to Olmsted Drive, on West Roosevelt Avenue from North Union to North Catherine streets, on Grandview Avenue from North Union to North Catherine streets, and on Spring from West Main Street to Grandview Avenue.

The ordinance also repeals a provision that had banned trucks weighing more than one ton from sections of Grandview, West Roosevelt and Wharton avenues.
