SJCOG staff is soliciting feedback on the draft SJCOG Truck Planning Study. The Truck Planning Study is intended to address the growing transportation/warehouse industry in San Joaquin County and reliance on roadways to move goods by informing jurisdictions of potential corridors for STAA designations (via recommendations) in the near term. This study includes an existing STAA network for San Joaquin County, gap assessment, stakeholder outreach, recommendations, and potential funding sources. Stakeholder outreach; including participation by city/county staff, CHP, and other private/public stakeholders, helped refine and identify the list of recommendations. This study identifies Tier 1 and 2 recommendations as a potential option for STAA designation. Tier 3 recommendations are meant to be denoted and potentially revisited at a later date.
The draft Truck Planning Study is currently open for public comment until 5 p.m., April 25, 2023. Comments can be submitted to Jay Halva at firstname.lastname@example.org. The draft Truck Planning Study can be found at https://www.sjcog.org/DocumentCenter/View/7920/DRAFT-Report---SJCOG-STAA-Truck-Route-Study.
The Truck Planning Study is anticipated to be finalized and taken to the SJCOG Board of Directors in May 2023.
