Utah Truck Parking Research Study
Utah’s I-15 Truck Parking study was funded by the Truck Parking Initiative from the United States Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU) Section 1305, Truck Parking Facilities. The purpose of the grant was to complete a truck parking study along the approximately 400 mile I-15 corridor in Utah.
Utah’s I-15 Truck Parking Study sought to determine the answers to three questions:
- Does the I-15 corridor have a truck parking problem?
- What do CMV drivers think about truck parking along the I-15 corridor and in Utah?
- If there is a truck parking problem, what can UDOT do to help alleviate the issues?
In August 2010, InterPlan, a transportation planning and engineering firm, was hired by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) and a local Project Management Committee was formed to guide the direction of the Utah I-15 Truck Parking Study.
