Group studies truck parking in I-81 corridor

A group studying freight movement along Interstate 81 says it hopes to create an electronic system to direct tractor-trailer drivers to open parking spaces.
A committee of the I-80 Corridor Coalition announced the project Monday in Hagerstown.

Virginia Tech Transportation Fellow Ray Pethtel says there are at least 5,260 designated truck parking spaces along the six-state, 855-mile corridor. But he says many trucks park overnight on ramps and road shoulders.

Pethtel says the group is seeking funding to develop a system that could use wireless technology to tell drivers where parking is available and what amenities exist at that location.
