In two recent incidents on Oct. 5 and 9, tractor-trailer trucks crashed on Highway 191 in Gallatin Canyon. How do you think these accidents could be mitigated in the canyon?

“Maybe lower the truck speed limit and increase penalties for speeding truckers. There could be a certain window of time when semi traffic is allowed in conjunction with other traffic.”

“The possibility of building another lane would enable vehicles to be routed around accidents or slow moving tractor-trailer trucks. [But] it’s a tough situation to negotiate with a mountain on one side and a river on the other.”

“Have them come through at certain hours, or limit the size of trucks that travel through. Ideally, re-route traffic and find another way for them to travel. Maybe an alternative route would be through Ennis.”
