Statewide Truck Parking Study 

The Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) conducted a study on the State’s top truck parking needs and solutions. The Maryland Statewide Truck Parking Study will be used to support the advancement of priority projects and strategies that improve truck parking statewide.

The shortage of truck parking is a major concern for transportation agencies across the nation. Inadequate truck parking results in trucks parked in unsafe locations and drivers operating beyond their hours-of-service. Safety concerns and observed truck parking shortages across the State, motivated the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) to commission a truck parking study in 2019. The Maryland Statewide Truck Parking Study has the following objectives:

  • Assess existing truck parking locations and utilization
  • Assess truck parking needs based on gaps in the system and truck parking demand
  • Consult stakeholders on truck parking needs and issues
  • Identify truck parking opportunities statewide
  • Identify funding opportunities including innovative options - exploring P3 and grant opportunities
