  • Crews will briefly stop all tanker trucks at the top of the pass to ensure safe speeds down the other side of the pass, in coordination with stopped traffic.
  • The speed limit on US 6 will be reduced during work hours in the work zone.
  • Vehicles wider than 10 feet will not be allowed in the work zone during work hours.
