TxDOT is hosting a series of statewide freight workshops to solicit input from freight shippers, carriers, facility operators, and the general public about truck parking and freight infrastructure design issues, needs, and potential solutions. Additional workshops are scheduled and listed on the www.movetexasfreight.com site. The workshops will feature displays and a brief presentation and opportunity to provide feedback. Comments must be received on or before April 1, 2019, to be included in the overall meeting summary report.
TxDOT is conducting two study efforts that focus on truck parking and freight infrastructure design issues and solutions. These studies are part of the Texas Freight Mobility Plan implementation. The purpose of the truck parking study is to assess and address truck parking needs with practical, innovative and cost-effective strategies. Texas' transportation system was built over multiple decades; even now, some of our roadways are not up to today's standards. Infrastructure design such as pavement, bridges, intersections and access to multimodal facilities will also be studied.
TxDOT is requesting the public sign up to attend the workshop to better understand attendance. Please register for this workshop and also take a quick online interactive survey about truck parking and infrastructure design issues on the www.movetexasfreight.com website.
