Summary Information

In Colorado, congestion, topography, and severe weather frequently combine to hinder the efficient movement of national and regional commercial freight traffic. CDOT is proposing to develop the Colorado Truck Parking Information Management System (TPIMS) to better address commercial vehicle parking needs throughout the state, including the delays truck drivers face hunting for parking for rest periods (everyday) and from queuing at chain-up areas (snow/ice conditions) across the state’s interstate highway network.

The Colorado TPIMS Project, expected to begin construction in early 2018, will be deployed across Colorado and will capture each of the three National Highway Freight Network corridors that traverse the state: Interstate 25 (I-25), Interstate 70 (I-70), and Interstate 76 (I-76). The Colorado TPIMS will monitor commercial and public parking availability along these routes, distribute real-time parking availability information to operators and dispatchers, and facilitate parking reservations, all through multiple technology applications.
