Exclusive Facilities for Trucks in Florida: An Investigation of the Potential for Reserved Truck Lanes and Truckways on the State Highway System

The concept of separate lanes for trucks is not new.
The Oakland Bay Bridge originally opened in this
configuration in the 1930’s
(Clarence Henry Truckway)
Criteria used included:
1998 and 1999 totals
Trailer on flat car facilities
From BTS/CUTR previous studies
Based on review of Highway Capacity Manual and discussions with FDOT
Truck terminals from BTS/CUTR previous work on freight network
Within Cities - short haul
Attempts to screen for “truck hotspots” that may be restricting access to freight facilities or impeding traffic flows
Between Cities– long haul
Screens for highest total demand for truck capacity and highway level of service
Six “Between Cities” highways emerged
Three ‘Within Cities” corridors were identified
Most of Florida’s Interstates have high scores
