Spurred by a wake of criminal charges against medical examiners who have fraudulently issued DOT medical certificates to truck operators, the U.S. DOT’s Office of Inspector General announced Wednesday it is opening an audit to evaluate the DOT medical certification program. Of focus in the audit is the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners, implemented by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration in 2014.
Since the August 2014 onset of the National Registry, there have been eight indictments and six convictions against medical examiners who have issued fraudulent certificates to drivers. In most cases, the examiner was issuing certificates without performing a full exam and, in some cases, the examiners uploaded fake exam results to FMCSA.

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the planned implementation on or about April 1, 2019 of a regional truck detour to allow for the replacement of the NH Route 9 bridge over Otter Brook in Sullivan.
During the bridge replacement project, a planned local detour route for light vehicles will involve a narrow roadway and sharp turn that will not be easily navigated by larger trucks, large motor homes, and vehicles hauling large travel trailers. A signed detour will direct westbound truck traffic on NH Route 9 to turn onto US 202 in Hillsborough, to NH Route 101 in Peterborough and proceed west to Keene. The detour heading eastbound will be to NH 101 in Keene to US 202 in Peterborough to NH 9 in Hillsborough.
This roadway reconstruction project along Route 9 begins near the Granite Gorge Ski Area in Roxbury and continues easterly for approximately 2.1 miles to the Centre Street intersection in Sullivan. Road work includes tree removal on the steep ridgeline slopes and slope reduction to improve sight distances. The project will also include significant drainage and guardrail improvements. Bridge work entails replacing the existing NH Route 9 bridge over Otter Brook, and rehabilitating the Centre Street Bridge over Otter Brook.
