The Federal Highway Administration has awarded the Texas Department of Transportation nearly $7 million to fund a truck parking availability system along Interstate 10 in four states…
The grant was one of a slew of awards distributed through FHWA’s Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment program.
TxDOT applied for the grant on behalf of the other three states: Arizona, California and New Mexico. The states and the I-10 Corridor Coalition, which promotes safety for commercial and passenger vehicles, will use the funds to set up a truck parking availability detection and information sharing system across 37 public rest areas along the route. The system will make truck parking information immediately available to truckers and dispatchers.
