Duarte : Truck Weight Limit Cut

The City Council has adopted an ordinance lowering the 34,000-pound weight limit for trucks using Duarte streets to 14,000 pounds. The city had experienced a problem with empty trucks, which weigh 15,000 to 32,000 pounds, using the Mt. Olive Drive exit from the Foothill (210) Freeway and using Huntington Drive as access to Encanto Parkway to quarry operations in Azusa. The city also is concerned about trash trucks traveling on Huntington Drive to Irwindale if a proposed Pacific Waste Management waste-to-energy plant is built there.
