Lack of adequate accommodation for truck parking along major freight corridors challenges transportation agencies and the trucking industry. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, May 2, 2023 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM Eastern that will provide a better understanding of the process for developing a truck parking information system along with successful strategies employed by leading agencies, technologies that might be considered to support sharing parking availability, and case studies of systems that may be transferable to other agencies. Presenters will share potential strategies for monitoring, ITS design, overcoming legal barriers, and funding mechanisms.
This webinar is based on NCHRP Project 20-68A, Scan 20-02: Successful Approaches for Facilitating Truck Parking Accommodation Along Major Freight Corridors.
This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program and the Standing Technical Committee on Truck and Bus Safety.
