California Freight Mobilty Plan includes several trucking-related objectives

Caltrans recently released its California Freight Mobility Plan, which details short- and long-term policies, strategies and investments. Trucking was a large focus, including parking, truck-only lanes, tolling and autonomous trucks.

On Monday, July 20, Caltrans published more than 300 pages outlining a plan for its freight system. A lot of space was dedicated to trucking, as trucks carry more freight in both value and weight than any other single mode in the state.

The California Freight Mobility Plan focuses on seven main goals:

Economic prosperity.
Environmental stewardship.
Healthy communities.
Safety and resiliency.
Asset management.
Connectivity and accessibility.
Multimodal mobility.
