District 5 Freight Resources
Regional Projects & Initiatives
District Five Truck Parking Study – As Florida’s population continues to grow and freight movement responds to commercial and consumer demands, truck parking needs must be addressed to ensure the trucking
industry has the necessary infrastructure to serve global trade while complying with trucking regulations and the quality of life of nearby communities. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District Five Truck Parking Study builds upon
the Jason’s Law truck parking survey, studies by the National Coalition of Truck parking, and incorporates recent events and federal activities. Truck parking is a national and statewide issue that is predicted to increase over time along with
the projected growth in truck traffic on the highway system. The shortage of convenient and available truck parking in District Five is a concern for safety and economic competitiveness.
