Truck Parking Investments for Missouri

In November 2021, Gov. Mike Parson created the Missouri Supply Chain Task Force (Task Force). This group held meetings across the state to identify supply chain problems facing Missouri businesses and citizens and develop potential solutions to address these challenges. Of the 32 recommendations in the Task Force’s final report, two focus specifically on truck parking. The first, (#29), recommends the State and Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) develop a communication method that can safely and effectively relay critical information inside the truck without posing any safety risk to the driver. The second, (#30), recommends MoDOT and private operators of truck parking sites invest in increasing availability in areas that are known to have high demand and insufficient capacity, on both interstate and non-interstate roads. Using the information gathered by the SFRP and Task Force, this project seeks recommendations of where to expand truck parking in Missouri. Sites should be prioritized based on a cost-benefit analysis to ensure the greatest return on state investment.
