Title USDOT Releases Technical Reports on Truck Size and Weight
Date Posted 6/18/2015
Description U.S. Department of Transportation released a series of technical reports on truck size and weight for peer review and public comment as a major step moving toward the completion of the comprehensive study called for in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21). The five technical reports released today present the issues associated with trucks operating within and in excess of current size and weight limits and assess the impacts on safety, pavement and bridge deterioration, enforcement, and shifts to other modes of transport such as rail. The Department will meet with an independent peer review team managed by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) and seek public comment as it works to develop the Final Report to Congress. Contact: Nancy Singer: (202) 366-0660.
