About the research
Abstract: The Minnesota Interstate Truck Parking Study was undertaken to help Mn/DOT develop the information necessary to support decisions regarding future approaches to the truck parking issues in Minnesota. The issues examined by the study effort include determining what the states role should be in the provision of truck parking; which provisions of long term truck parking will provide the greatest support to the states economy, and what actions will provide the greatest impact on traffic safety, while taking maximum advantage of effective technology and available federal programs.
