Truck Restricted Roads and Bridges

The City maintains a Truck Route Map that depicts streets in which large trucks (tractor truck, trailers, or semi-trailers) are restricted and the preferred route they should take.  Pickup trucks and smaller panel trucks are exempt.  

Restricting large trucks from local, residential streets maintains the character of the community, decreases frequency for asphalt and pavement maintenance and ensures large trucks are traveling along designated truck routes.  

Drivers sometimes disregard these routes and use neighborhood streets as cut-throughs.  To reduce unpermitted truck access on these roadways, the City will deploy “No Through Truck” signage on streets that meet the criteria for cut-through truck traffic.  

Virginia Law: Code of Virginia

"Truck" means every motor vehicle designed to transport property on its own structure independent of any other vehicle and having a registered gross weight in excess of 7,500 pounds. "Truck" does not include any pickup or panel truck.
