No doubt you’ve seen dangerous driving on the Lesner Bridge too.
There will now be a Police presence there.
Tractor trailers carrying over-sized loads to the site have repeatedly encountered drivers who cut in front of the trucks and then come to a sudden stop, police said in a statement released Friday. Because of the extreme weight of the trucks – about 280,000 pounds – they need a distance that is longer than a football field to be able to come to a stop.

The grant committee’s application highlights that Shore Drive is a prime candidate for this technology due to high pedestrian volumes, significant pedestrian accident rates, the presence of a substantial elderly population and a strong military presence along the corridor.
If the grant application is successful, the city would match grant money with “in kind” funds using staff and equipment already budgeted.
Possible grant with matching COVB funds to get more pedestrian love on Shore Drive.
