TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) – The Natchez Trace Parkway is making an effort to cut down on commercial vehicles traveling along the parkway.

Rangers are adding the universal “No Truck” signs at entrances with the most problems with truck traffic.

Authorities say the number of tractor trailers on the parkway has steadily increased over the past few years.

They say the new signs provide a clear notice to truckers that the parkway is off limits.

If you see a tractor trailer on the parkway, you’re urged to contact 1-800-300-7275 and provide the dispatcher with the location, direction of travel and any other identifying truck features.
