Tight corner vexes truckers

LAHARPE — A new truck route established by LaHarpe City Council last year is unsafe for drivers turning into town from U.S. 54, one such driver contended.

Jason Schmidt of Nelson Quarries spoke to Council members Wednesday about his concerns related to accessing the company’s property via Monroe Street on the west edge of town.

A tight corner atop a small culvert makes it impractical and unsafe for drivers to enter Monroe from the highway, Schmidt explained.
