The Coalition is piloting a Truck Parking Availability System, designed to advise over-the-road truck drivers on the real-time availability of truck parking spaces. Because this effort is undertaken by the I-95 Corridor Coalition, rather than an individual state or agency, the system will not be limited by state boundaries or jurisdictional lines.
The I-95 Corridor Coalition launched the pilot of its Truck ‘N Park Demonstration System on November 20, 2015. An FHWA-funded project, Truck ‘N Park will demonstrate an automated technology to advise over-the-road commercial vehicle drivers on the real-time availability of truck parking spaces at two public rest areas in Virginia and Maryland — I-95 Ladysmith Rest Area, Northbound, Ladysmith, VA (approximately 30 miles north of Richmond) and the I-95 Welcome Center, Northbound, Laurel, MD (approximately 20 miles south of Baltimore). There is no charge to utilize Truck ‘N Park, and the system can be accessed by website or phone.
