Get real, some big trucks are always going to need to use that road to deliver big equipment and perhaps even mobile homes in that area so you can't completely ban them.
Make it by permit only, and put up big signs just like we alredy do for weight limits and include a phone number so any trucker at the sign can call and get a permit just by giving authorities all the particulars on his truck and load.
If the penalty for not getting a permit is stiff enough, like confiscation of the truck and load, if a violation is discovered that might have been found at an inspection stop if he had use the highway, most truckers will stop using the road.
Also, make em wait for a permit at least 1/2 hour if they call from the sign. If the road doesn't save time, it won't even be worth using to beat traffic.
At least then deliveries to that are wouldn't be cut off.

i dont belive how they could blame the truck driver for everything. first of all, the truck driver is not from the area. second, his gps probaly took him through that area with out his knowledge of the conditions of the road. I feel bad for the people who died, but caltrans has the blame for this.
