I-10 Corridor Coalition Pooled Fund Study

In 2019, in coordination with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), the Coalition collaborated through a Federal Highway Administration pooled fund study to develop planning strategies for improved and connected freight movement on the I-10 Corridor. The following five strategies identified in the study provide the Coalition’s planning framework for a safer and more efficient movement of freight: 

  • Truck parking availability systems
  • Freight traveler information systems
  • Freight technology environment
  • Roadside safety communication
  • Oversize/overweight permit standardization

The Coalition selected a truck parking availability system as their initial strategy to be implemented. The I-10 Truck Parking Availability System (TPAS) is the first freight project for the Coalition, for which they received a $6.85 million U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment (ATCMTD) grant in April 2019.
