District of Columbia Motor Carrier Management and Threat Assessment Study

The District of Columbia Motor Carrier Management and Threat Assessment Study provides a detailed analysis of current motor carrier activity in the District of Columbia (the District), an outline of the truck traffic concerns of stakeholder groups, and a framework for the creation of a comprehensive motor carrier management program. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has commissioned the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Volpe National Transportation Systems Center (Volpe) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to conduct the study. Through the implementation of recommendations from this study, DDOT hopes to: Reduce truck traffic on residential streets; Reduce congestion due to truck traffic and truck loading/unloading activities; Provide better information and services to truck operators; and Address truck-related security concerns. This study does not address individual location-specific problems. Rather, it takes a larger view of truck issues and recommends an overall truck management program that can be used to address specific complaints and problem locations.
