Big Rig on Germantown Road

Came on this on our ride yesterday:

We could get around the left side easily, but cars and pickups were coming up the road that would have had a hard time.

The trailer jack was jammed against the pavement. This rig was not going anywhere soon.

Took that road many times back in the day, Dumbass, road should be closed to all but M/C traffic. Of course i think Oregon in general is the worst for oncoming drivers sharing your lane, that road and Cornelius Pass were constant reminders to stay off the inside of the center line.

I would expect that road to be signed closed to tractor trailers. There are hairpins that can barely accommodate a 1970s station wagon, let alone a big rig.
ZXtasy and Greg like this.

It definitely is...

But, I'm sure it was just a local delivery.

Yeah, bad sign. That's just saying the road is not intended as a truck through route. They need a restriction by size rather than, or in addition to, restriction by trip purpose. A truck that ain't gonna fit ain't gonna fit no matter who it's delivering to.

The sign should also read length restricted.Ride Hwy 219 from Hillsboro to Newberg and you’ll see what I mean.
