Board initiates ordinance limiting where trucks can travel

The Riverside County Board of Supervisors Tuesday, Dec. 17, directed the county Transportation and Land Management Agency to begin the process of drafting an ordinance that would prohibit big rigs from operating on some unincorporated county roads to reduce impacts on residential areas.In a 5-0 vote without comment, the board backed the proposal, which Chairman Kevin Jeffries first broached in 2018, citing the need to restrict the movement of tractor-trailers to prevent them from exacerbating congestion and roadway surface damage in certain locations.TLMA staff will spend the next several months researching what provisions to include in the proposed ordinance and determining how narrowly or broadly tailored it should be.
