WA Truck Tracking Pilot Project

This morning, Barbara Ivanov, Co-director of WSDOT's Freight Systems Division, presented a briefing to the RAMP attendees about the Truck Tracking Pilot Project.

Begun by the Legislature in 2007, there is now two years of data in the central Puget Sound Region (King, Pierce, Snohomish, Kitsap) and nine months of data in the balance of the state.  The project uses GPS data from about 6,000 monitored trucks (1-2% of total truck traffic) to model the value statistics:  travel time.

Already, WSDOT is able to highlight a Top 10 Worst  highway stretches for central Puget Sound and the Top 10 Worst stretches for Washington state.  This info is promised for posting on DOT's website by the end of the contracted study period - June 2011.
