Freight Movement

Freight vehicles are an integral aspect of the transportation network and crucial to the economic vitality of any city. A key consideration is to manage freight vehicle traffic to limit negative impacts to City residents and employees. Our transportation infrastructure allows trucks traffic to flow efficiently and minimize the possible exposure of people in sensitive areas, such as residential neighborhoods, hospitals and schools, to accidents involving trucks, high noise levels, and diesel emissions. In addition, directing truck traffic to use designated routes minimizes impacts and maintenance demands on roadways not designed or designated for truck traffic.


Create a transportation system which accommodates the safe and efficient movement of freight vehicles on appropriate routes.


M-5.01. Designated Truck Routes. We identify, implement, and maintain a system of truck routes that allows efficient freight movement while minimizing negative impacts on local roads and noise-sensitive land uses.
M-5.02. Truck Route Monitoring. We periodically review and update designated truck routes to ensure efficiency and limit negative impacts on residential areas and other sensitive land uses.
M-5.03. Freight Corridor Maintenance. We provide pavement maintenance and routine sign replacement on designated freight corridors under the jurisdiction of the City.
M-5.04. Parking, Delivery Hours and Loading. We will consider establishing standards which direct commercial deliveries to occur during off-peak periods to limit freight impacts on parking and other modes of travel, and to regulate delivery hours and loading locations to minimize noise impacts to adjacent residential uses.
