Truck Parking Needs in Tennessee

The objectives of this research are to provide the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) with important guidance on truck parking issues and opportunities, by identifying parking needs (i.e., addition of capacity and/or construction of new facilities); developing truck parking violation rates (i.e., truck parking on on- and off- ramps) and developing/applying a methodology to identify candidate locations for new truck parking facilities in the State of TN. This study extends the work done by Golias et al. (2017) and Cherry et al. (2017) who used truck global positioning system (GPS) and survey data to evaluate the performance of truck parking in TN.
