The village is prohibiting large trucks from using an oft-traversed passage that has proved troublesome for drivers and been the scene of many heavy tow rescues.
Ridgewood Council members unanimously approved a 4-ton weight limit on Glenwood Road from Morningside Road to the Ho-Ho-Kus border, essentially preventing a certain truck classification from navigating the roadway’s tight corners and turns.
“In any [hazardous] weather conditions, we get some slipping and sliding,” said Village Manager Ken Gabbert, described one bend as a sharp, 90-degree turn. “It was determined to keep larger vehicles off of that road and thereby not have to close when we have to have someone towed out because they get caught.”
