Oversized trucks keep getting stuck at the Prospect Street underpass in Chicopee. The most recent occurrence of a truck getting stuck was last Wednesday.

There have been several suggested solutions on how to prevent these accidents. Chicopee City Councilor William Courshesne suggested shutting down the underpass to truck traffic.

22News spoke to a nearby business owner, who has seen the accident happen several times.

“I think put up better signs and lots of trucks know about what’s coming up and everything that would solve the problem a lot better,” said Gus Matthews.

Another nearby business owner suggested installing a flashing yellow light to warn truckers to avoid the underpass.
