El Paso/Far West Texas truck parking
The Truck Parking Action Plan for El Paso/Far West Texas builds upon TxDOT's 2020 Statewide Truck Parking Study completed in April 2020 and focuses on finding solutions for safe truck parking in the El Paso and Odessa TxDOT Districts, including an analysis of parking demand in Mexico and New Mexico.
Stakeholder engagement and schedule
TxDOT will engage industry stakeholders and the public through meetings, surveys, and roundtables to help develop a Truck Parking Action Plan by the spring of 2024.
The plan, vision, goals, and objectives were developed in the fall of 2022. The plan is currently identifying truck parking needs and will be engaging external agency partners and industry partners.
Between fall 2023 and spring 2024, freight industry surveys and stakeholder interviews will be conducted to help identify improvement strategies. Public input will be gathered throughout the study. Additional outreach will be conducted to vet the strategies and move into the conceptual design for truck parking sites, including location and access studies, conceptual design for new truck parking sites, and preliminary cost estimates. These efforts will lead to a final truck parking action plan being ready in the spring of 2024.
