MAP-21 Size & Weight Study Delayed
FHWA announced just before the Thanksgiving break that they would not make their goal:
Comprehensive Truck Size and Weight Limits Study stakeholders:
As you know, MAP-21 required the Department of Transportation to undertake a comprehensive look at truck size and weight limits. The Department set an aggressive schedule and committed to significant stakeholder outreach in order to meet both the report due date and to produce a quality report.
We recognize many people, including Congress, are eagerly awaiting the release of the report. However, the Department is committed to producing the most objective, data-driven report possible. Based on the current status and the scope and importance of the task at hand, we have had to delay completion of the study until 2015.
