This report is designed to assist transportation agency administrators in identifying those practices that have been used to manage the increasing demand for truck parking. The emphasis is on identifying successful and innovative strategies that have been implemented by transportation agencies, as well as potential strategies yet to be deployed. The report examines the legislative authority governing the provision of truck parking by state transportation agencies, including federal requirements and selected state laws, to provide a framework for action. An analysis is provided of the demand for truck parking. Several case studies are discussed. Information for this report was derived primarily from a detailed survey questionnaire that was distributed to highway maintenance engineers in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. Responses were received from 24 transportation agencies. A literature review was also undertaken.
