Stuck Truck Freed; Md. Route 75 Open

View Comments

MONROVIA, Md. (AP) — Maryland State Police say Route 75 near New Market has reopened after workers freed a tractor-trailer stuck beneath a railroad bridge.

Police say the road was closed for about three hours Monday morning.

The bridge is a bit of a bottleneck for truck traffic generated by a nearby industrial park.

Trucks get stuck there so often that the State Highway Administration installed hanging metal chimes there last year to
warn trucks that are too tall to go through.

The agency also erected a sign warning that trucks more than 12 feet, six inches tall cannot enter.
