Morris police on patrol of Lisbon-Fulton Street viaduct

Sudents reportedly walking under viaduct to get to school

MORRIS – Stay away from the viaduct.

Morris police have received reports from concerned residents near the Lisbon-Fulton Street railroad viaduct that students are walking under the viaduct to get to school.

“The road under the viaduct is tight, and there is no shoulder for pedestrians to walk on,” the department said in a Facebook post. “In addition, visibility for oncoming cars is limited due to the dip in the road, so vehicles do not have a lot of time to react if pedestrians are in the way.”

Not only that, but it’s illegal to use the viaduct on foot or bike.

Signs on both sides of the viaduct read, “Pedestrians and bicycles prohibited.”

There is a pedestrian/bicycle bypass parallel to and on the west side of the Lisbon-Fulton Street viaduct that goes through Goold Park.

Police are on extra patrol of the area during school hours.
