Researching changes to the Federal and State regulations that govern commercial vehicle size and weight limits in New Jersey, assessing “best practice” communication techniques to share information with industry, and developing updates to NJDOT’s Commercial Vehicle Size and Weight Guidebook and accompanying brochure. The purpose of this work effort includes: Identifying recent changes to Federal and State regulations, including Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act and Title 13 of the New Jersey Administrative Code, that necessitate updates to NJDOT’s Commercial Vehicle Size and Weight Guidebook and brochure; Reviewing national research on best practices, and conducting interviews with other Mid-Atlantic states, FHWA, New Jersey Motor Truck Association, and New Jersey State Police to identify effective methods for communicating size and weight regulations and requirements to the industry; and developing recommended updates to NJDOT’s Commercial Vehicle Size and Weight Guidebook (published in 2017) and the brochure that accompanies the Guidebook.
