Truck drivers asked to provide input on I-10 truck parking solutions

I-10 Corridor Coalition survey to support new parking system

PHOENIX -- A survey of commercial vehicle drivers and dispatchers who travel Interstate 10 is underway to better understand the challenges and issues commercial drivers face when seeking parking at locations along the I-10 corridor. Truck survey

The I-10 Corridor Coalition, composed of the departments of transportation in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, is conducting a survey through Oct. 30.

Truck drivers and dispatchers are being asked to provide input to help guide the creation of a truck parking availability system (TPAS). The I-10 Corridor Coalition was awarded a $6.85 million U.S. Department of Transportation Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment grant in 2019 to implement an I-10 truck parking availability system along the corridor in the coalition states. 

To complete the survey, commercial drivers and dispatchers can use this survey link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/I10TPAS2020) or visit  i10connects.com  and go to the TPAS Get Involved page.

The purpose of the I-10 Corridor Coalition project is to implement a truck parking availability detection and information system at 37 public truck parking locations along the I-10 Corridor from California to Texas. This system will provide real-time truck parking information to assist truck drivers and dispatchers in making informed parking decisions, and improve safety, mobility, operational and environmental elements. 

The Arizona Department of Transportation is planning to make improvements at four Arizona rest areas along I-10 at locations on both the eastbound and westbound sides of the highway. Those rest areas include Bouse Wash, Ehrenberg, Texas Canyon and San Simon.
