This design-build project will construct a new truck parking facility with approximately 120 spaces, electric hookups, and pedestrian infrastructure to access nearby commercial amenities.
The truck parking facility will be connected to the Florida Department of Transportation’s Truck Parking Availability System to assist commercial vehicle operators in identifying available parking locations.
This project addresses a shortage in parking for commercial vehicles on a corridor between Tampa and Orlando which carries an average of 18,000 trucks daily and reduces parking in unauthorized areas such as vacant lots or highway shoulders. By providing reliable parking capacity, the project reduces time drivers spend searching for commercial vehicle parking, making supply chain movement more efficient. Additionally, the electric hookups and the reduced time searching for parking will decrease commercial vehicle emissions.
The Federal Highway Administration awarded this project an Infrastructure for Rebuilding America (INFRA) Grant in 2022.
Currently in the design phase. Construction anticipated to start in 2025.
- There are no closures at this time.
