COLUMBUS COUNTY, NC (WECT) – Commissioners in Columbus County say residents are concerned about large trucks driving on Old Lake Road, which is where Acme-Delco Elementary School is located.
Commissioners can’t change traffic ordinances, but decided Tuesday night to send a letter to the Department of Transportation to encourage them to make it illegal for 18-wheelers and other large trucks to drive down the road during school hours.
Many truck drivers use the route to get to the international paper company in Riegelwood.
