Ozark Automotive Destroying City Sidewalks

Ozark Automotive Distributors created a driveway connection at


Although the surrounding neighborhood is zoned residential 1-A,

They’re running tractor trailers through R-1A out Glenwood to the traffic light at Washington.

The tractor trailers can’t make the turns and they’re fouling up the sidewalk at the driveway making a left turn onto Glenwood, and at Glenwood and Washington making a left turn onto Washington, in front of the Church.

The sidewalk in front of the church now has a giant ditch / tire rut next to it, which I can imagine an elderly person easily falling off of and breaking something. (Happened to my grandmother, incidentally on the sidewalk outside a church).

Ozark Automotive needs to stop running tractor trailers through a residential area and use Nichols to take a right on Cherry, then get on the Interstate at Rutledge Pike.

Or, they need to compensate the city for the damage they’re causing by taking the "shortcut" to the Interstate through a residential neighborhood.
