PLEASE BE ADVISED:
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, hopefully to be completed in October 2014. 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.
