City crews are working on the newly established truck route removing obstacles to trucks turning onto the streets.

Public Services Director Jim McClain said triangular meridians were being removed at 4th and Willow. After that project, crews will cut the meridian back about 12 feet at Willow and Grand so trucks will be able to make the turn easier, he said.

The median at Garriott and Van Buren also has been removed, McClain said, which will make that turn easier for large trucks to make.

Those tasks are part of the promise made to truckers when the truck route was established. Enid City Commission amended the truck route ordinance at its meeting last week. Among the changes made was reducing the fine for violations of the ordinance. Originally, violations were considered Class B crimes, with a fine of $544. After hearing concerns from the trucking industry, the violation has been reclassified to a Class C. The first violation will result in a $144 fine, and subsequent offenses will be $244.
