PennDOT focusing on truck parking in Lehigh Valley, other congested areas

Parking for tractor trailers was already a problem in Pennsylvania 11 years ago, and now PennDOT is calling for help with solutions.

On Thursday, PennDOT Secretary Leslie Richards said the department is moving forward with a public-private partnership, referred to as a P3, to address truck parking in the state.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

It's a step in the right direction. Seeing is believing especially when politics is involved..."not in my backyard."

By the time construction begins I'll be entered in a senior center checker tournament opposing Old School and Errol.

I drive by a bunch of rest stops at like 4 am and there are trucks both sides of on and off ramps and down the road. It's crazy. Plus side though the rest stop/weigh station combos are hardly ever open. Not sure if that's partly due to being overloaded with trucks.

Someone send this link to Maryland's DOT or whoever handles that sort of thing. Outside of a pay-to-stay TA lot in Jessup, you might find a Walmart with an understanding night manager. Other than that you are SOL for 50 miles or better in any direction.

Whilw PA is a beautiful state to drive through, parking really is miserable. But then again when I think about it, most of the northeast is there same way. Try parking in Mass. Other than the tiny rest areas on the pike which hold like ten trucks, there's almost nowhere else to park. Of course none of this is new though. It's been an ongoing epidemic for a while now.
