New Policies & Directions for Overweight, Heavier & Larger Vehicles: A Multi-Stakeholder Approach to Developing Effective Policies to Reduce the Impact Costs on Roads and Bridges

On May 23, 2018, C2SMART at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering and two of its collaborating partners, the Infrastructure Monitoring and Evaluation (RIME) Group at Rutgers University and the International Center for Enterprise Preparedness (INTERCEP), also at NYU, held a meeting to establish a dialogue with multiple stakeholders to address and discuss some of the main challenges related to overweight and heavy vehicles and their impact on transportation infrastructure. The impact of overweight, heavier and larger vehicles on the deterioration of transportation infrastructure (i.e., pavement and bridges) is a significant and ongoing challenge. It has been a point of discussion in transportation policy circles for many years, and there is a need for a serious dialogue with all the stakeholders involved to inform optimal solutions. The May 23, 2018 Stakeholder Forum brought together representatives from the trucking industry, government agencies, researchers and other stakeholders to establish an ongoing dialogue among multiple stakeholders to address and discuss some of the main issues related to this challenge. This report summarizes the presentations and subsequent dialogue that followed each presentation as well as outlining potential next steps.
