Dutchess County has re-opened the Palen Road bridge and posted a maximum weight of 13 tons. They anticipate a reconstruction project in the future to restore the bridge to its full capacity. Until that time our school bus drivers cannot use the Palen Road bridge. A POSTED weight limit MUST be adhered to. This will impact our big buses into the 2014-2015 school year, as our large vehicle gross weight is just shy of 15 tons.
Reminder: On days that we do not transport WCSD students, we do not transport Private and Parochial students either.
