The Kansas Department of Transportation and the Kansas Turnpike Authority have started a freight truck parking study.
“As more freight moves across the state, truck parking needs to be reevaluated in order to determine if current needs are being met,” Kansas Transportation Secretary Mike King said.
The state’s truck parking capacity, conditions, trends and opportunities will be studied to develop recommendations to improve state freight network safety, efficiency and competitiveness.  The study, which will be done by consulting engineers HNTB, will complete in October.
