Binghamton Tackles “Stuck Truck” Problem

Tall trucks soon will be able to safely travel under a pair of railroad bridges in Binghamton.

A portion of Front Street near Clinton Street is being “lowered” to provide more clearance at the two problematic underpasses.

Crews began work on the project about three weeks ago. Utility lines have been replaced so the road surface adjustments can be made.

City officials have discussed the project for years as a solution to the “struck truck” issue that has frequently snarled traffic on the busy connector between downtown and Route 17.

The street-lowering initiative and other improvements are part of a Front Street Gateway Project that will cost about $3 million.

Drivers can expect detours around the Front Street site as the work continues over the next several weeks.
