    To be fair trucks have won at least 1, the i5 bridge in washington lost to that oversize a while back.

    I am sure . I normally run it once or twice a month now since the acct I have been on for the last two months but I live below Harrisburg so its the best way home .
    However that road can be your best friend or worst enemy some times... lol

    Oh and not to mention my pit stop at the Allegany exit for my monthly Primanti bros stop .:biggrin_25525:

    Not only 2 signs, but the bridge is eye level and there is a large turn around.
    Its a GPS error and a derpy driver who is to lazy to go the extra 1 mile for the go around.

    There are 2 near me in the Streator area one is on RT 17 it is marked 13-9 however if your tandems are sucked forward on a 53 footer your going to hit pavement with the ICC bumper. A couple Years ago a driver was hauling a Backhoe that measured out at 13-5 and the State had just Repaved there and the Operator of the paving company was a little lazy in following the Special instructions and that Backhoe Slammed into the Railroad bridge doing 55 MPH. Driver was NOT Cited as he was an Oversize load for Width not Height and was ON his Route. The State got out the Measuring Poles Really quick and went OH CRAP and started grinding the New Pavement out. The Next step was to make the Pavement Contractor Pay for the Repairs to the Bridge and the Backhoe. The Irony of it all was the Backhoe that hit the Bridge was going to that Company that did the Paving job.

    The other one is in the town and is a major bypass for emergency equipment to the northern end of town. It was always a Tight fit for semis and had a couple scrapes at times. So the City being Smart for once when they rebuilt it Lowered the Floor 5 Inches and created room.
