Several states considering moves that could affect truck parking

State departments of transportation in Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and California, collectively known as the I-10 Corridor Coalition, are looking to obtain a federal grant to build a program that will alert truckers of available public parking spaces at I-10 rest areas.

The coalition is seeking an Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment Grant worth $13.7 million. The Federal Highway Administration oversees the grant.

According to an Arizona Department of Transportation news release, the coalition states are proposing a system that would inform truckers of available parking.
