"We're extremely concerned that large trucks, ones that are 102 inches wide and the piggy-back double-combinations, would be coming through on Route 27 in Kingston," said Anne Zeman, chairwoman of the Joint Township Committee for Kingston Village.
said that KVAC strongly opposes opening up Route 27
to large tractor-trailers.She
said the committee is concerned because Route 27
is narrow in Kingston and there is no shoulder through the village."People walk everyday to get their mail at the Post Office," Ms. Zeman
said."It would be very dangerous with the trucks on the road."Ms. Zeman
said KVAC is also concerned about the damage the trucks could cause to some of the historic buildings in the village."These large trucks not only damage the highways, but they can be very damaging to historic structures," Ms. Zeman
said that people should fax or mail letters to the DOT in opposition of the new regulations before the public comment period on the proposed rules expires Feb. 16.Letters should be sent to the Department of Transportation
