DOT awards grants for truck parking monitoring

The U.S. Department of Transportation awarded $4.48 million to Michigan’s I-94 Truck Parking and Information Management System and almost $2.05 million to Minnesota’s Comprehensive System for Assessing Truck Parking Availability.

Both systems will deliver real-time information on parking availability through intelligent transportation systems.

The Federal Highway Administration is providing the grants under the Truck Parking Facilities Discretionary Grants Program, which helps improve safety on the nation’s interstates by promoting projects that allow trucks to park safely and securely in areas away from moving traffic, instead of alongside roads.
