How about some some signs reminding people that if you have a one lane bridge, you slow down and check for traffic on the bridge before entering it? Especially since I’ve seen more than one green diamond truck forget this?

Wow! Somebody found a way to get a Humboldt County Supervisor AND Public Works to respond to a problem. Good work, what was the secret? I’m sure it couldn’t have been the money because our gument’ officials and bureaucrats certainly aren’t for sale.

This is great news for the community. Lots of logging trucks going over the speed limit to and from the mill. Glad they are doing something about it.

6 grand. Wow they really put themselves out dropping that kind of cash. Thats almost as much as i spend on tires and front end parts after driving on the roads in that part of the county. Why don’t they just let that stretch of road fall apart too? That will slow people down. 🙂

It would be nice to believe GDRC really “care” about this issue and the traffic impacts of their operation as well as North Fork’s activities (who bought the mill from them).

Then we’d also expect to see GDRC supporting the extension of the A&M trail from Blue Lake to Korbel. An alternate way for folks to walk, bike, etc. between the two towns and access the back country. So that we humans don’t have to mix it up with logging trucks on a narrow road.

And what do you suppose has happened there?

Right.

Private industry shouldn’t have to pay for basic safety infrastructure twice.

While it’s a good thing they stepped up, the government officials involved here should be ashamed. Asking private industry to pay for what they’ve already paid for via taxation.

SHAME ON YOU STEVE MADRONE!!

Now how about Fieldbrook? The average speed on Fieldbrook rd. going to Mactown, is between 58 and 72 mph!!! No police/radar presence EVER!! Would also be nice to not have idiots driving 40+ over the speed bumps and right on past the school. Which is 15mph. in case your number blind!! The radar signs also need to photo vehicle, plate #’s if possible and instantly send that info directly to the CHP. A nice little letter n fine notice comes right in the mail! Another simple peoples problem solved! THX.
