I-10 Corridor Coalition

Interstate 10 connects people, businesses, states and more. Recognizing the importance of these connections, the departments of transportation for California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas formed the I-10 Corridor Coalition in 2016. The Coalition’s goal is to work together to promote safer and more efficient travel for both people and freight along the I-10 corridor by sharing expertise and resources, jointly testing technology, and implementing innovative transportation improvements and best practices.

What’s New

Truck Parking Availability System (TPAS)

In April 2019, the Coalition was awarded a grant of $6.85 million by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) to implement a Truck Parking Availability System (TPAS) on the I-10 corridor from California to Texas. The four Coalition states agreed to match the grant, bringing the total project funding to $13.7 million.

The I-10 TPAS project – once implemented – will help truck drivers and dispatchers make informed decisions about where to safely and efficiently park along the corridor. Truck drivers along this corridor frequently have difficulty finding authorized parking, which can result in decisions to park in unauthorized or unsafe locations (such as along highway shoulders, entrance and exit ramps, or local streets), or to continue driving beyond Hours-of-Service limits. The TPAS project will create a system that can detect where truck parking is available at locations along the corridor and disseminate that information to truck drivers and dispatchers in real-time. This will reduce the amount of time and fuel spent looking for parking, as well as the risk that drivers will park in inappropriate locations or continue to drive while fatigued.
