Neighbors say trapped trucks 'happen all the time.'

responded to a box truck stuck under the train tressel at the intersection of Franklin Turnpike and Route 202 Tuesday afternoon.

The truck, observed to be from Northeast Janitorial Supply, Inc, was wedged between the street and the train tressel causing a traffic backup at the intersection.

Mahwah Police could not yet comment on the incident, but nearby neighbors say that oversized trucks getting trapped under the overpass is a common occurrence.

bridge trivia: why are some blocks painted red at Airmont rd bridge?

Hank,the red painted bricks are to alert the people driving east on west airmount to yield to the people driving west on west airmount,which does not happen often,this is my understanding of the painted bricks

I believe it serves as a "Traffic Signal", the side if the bridge with the red blocks has to "yeild" to on comming traffic because the Airmont bridge is not wide enough for 2 cars to pass at the same time
