ALBION – The Albion Town Board has approved a local law establishing a 15-ton weight limit on Gaines Basin Road from the south entrance of Walmart, going south to the Barre townline, which is between West County House Road and Route 31A (West Lee Road).

Delivery trucks should use alternative routes such as routes 98 and 31, said Michael Neidert, the Albion town highway superintendent.

The town previously didn’t have a weight limit for the road. Neidert said heavy trucks, such as tractor trailers and loaded dump trucks, have avoided going through the village on 31 and 98. Those heavy vehicles have taken a toll on the road, Neidert said.
