PEAK PERIOD LARGE TRUCK RESTRICTIONS AND A SHIFT TO OFF-PEAK OPERATIONS: IMPACT ON TRUCK EMISSIONS AND PERFORMANCE

The purpose of this paper is twofold. First, it presents methods to estimate changes in truck performance measures that are useful to evaluate the effectiveness of peak period large truck restrictions. Second, it identified the areas for which more accurate data and more careful analysis should be sought. This paper limits the analysis to the direct changes in truck performance measures. Indirect changes in the performance measures (e.g., emissions) of other vehicles as a result of changes in truck operations are not included. However, the final section of this paper addresses some of these important issues.
