Longview’s ‘truck-eating bridge’ claims another victim

Local News

Longview’s infamous truck-eating bridge has claimed another victim.

According to the Longview Police Department, another big rig that was too tall to make it underneath the Green Street Bridge got stuck Monday afternoon.

In October 2012, city officials began work on increasing the clearance at the railroad overpass. In 2014, it was revealed the clearance was increased by a foot, but it is still not intended for commercial truck use, according to the Longview News-Journal.

The signage on the underpass declares a clearance of 11’2″ on the south side and 11’4″ on the north.

No injuries were reported.
