TPAS Schedule

In April 2019, the I-10 Corridor Coalition was awarded the $6.85 million ATCMTD grant to implement the truck parking availability system. Since that time, the Coalition has been conducting technical coordination among the four member states and preparing for stakeholder engagement opportunities. The TPAS project will be fully deployed and operating within four years from the ATCMTD grant filing date of April 20, 2020 with the tentative deployment date scheduled for June 2023.

Over the four-year deployment of the TPAS project, stakeholder engagement will be conducted to gather information from the trucking community that will assist the Coalition in developing a system that meets the needs of the end users. Outreach efforts will continue with the trucking community to raise awareness of the I-10 TPAS and promote its benefits of safe, reliable, and efficient parking and travel along the I-10 corridor.

Current Activities

Concept of Operations

During this planning and design phase of the project, the TPAS concept of operations (ConOps) is being developed to identify user needs and system requirements that will serve as a guide for the design, locations, and function of the TPAS technology

TPAS Survey

As part of the stakeholder engagement effort, the I-10 TPAS project conducted a survey to identify user needs and system requirements for TPAS. A summary of the survey results will be posted soon.

Stakeholder Workshops/Meetings

The Coalition is currently working to schedule workshops and meetings with stakeholders in the trucking community. These meetings are anticipated to begin in August or September 2020. Please contact us if you would like information on opportunities to participate in an I-10 TPAS workshop or request a presentation at your next industry meeting.

Future Activities

Implementation:

Once final design is complete, the procurement process will begin to engage contractors for the development of system software and construction of the TPAS system. Testing of the installed system will be performed to verify its full function prior to launching in 2023.

Maintenance:

Performance monitoring and maintenance of the I-10 TPAS will be conducted and funded by the ATCMTD grant for one year after launch of the system.
