Keeping commercial vehicles on their designated routes is a major challenge throughout Baltimore City due to the changing economic and neighborhood conditions within the city. While truck traffic is necessary to maintain commercial and industrial activity, it is possible to reduce its impact on communities.
Many truck routes have not been examined for their appropriateness and practicality in several decades. The Baltimore City Department of Transportation has conducted an audit of existing truck routes to analyze and ultimately re-route truck traffic to balance both economic viability and community livability.
A series of public meetings were held in 2010 to present proposed truck routes for each quadrant of the city. Four February 2011 meetings have been scheduled to give residents an opportunity to view the citywide map in its entirety. The same presentation will be given during each of the four February meetings.
