Secretary LaHood Awards $6.5 Million To Ease Truck Parking Shortages in Michigan and Minnesota

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood awarded $4,480,000 to Michigan's I-94 Truck Parking and Information Management System and $2,049,940 to Minnesota's Comprehensive System for Assessing Truck Parking Availability. Both systems will deliver real-time information on parking availability through Intelligent Transportation Systems. The Federal Highway Administration is providing the grants under the Truck Parking Facilities Discretionary Grants Program. The program helps improve safety on the nation's interstates by promoting projects that allow trucks to park safely and securely in areas away from moving traffic, instead of alongside the road itself.
