Tow truck used same route through Amherst College to get to wrecked truck
Three weeks after a vegetable truck downsized the hard way while trying to negotiate under the railroad bridge on South East Street, the town has put up a couple of signs warning about the stingy clearance.
Sign on rt faces the dirt road that comes down Fort Hill
Apparently the new Book & Plow farm on Amherst College property has increased traffic from the dirt road that connects from their the tennis courts to South East Street coming out very near the bridge.
The other equally low bike path bridge up by Mill Lane, a half mile away, is clearly marked on both sides so the theory used to be you would never make it under that bridge to get to this one.
Not any more.
