Truck Management Plan (TMP) Update
The City and Port continue to make progress on the first actions described in the TMP, which were to update truck parking regulations and the network of truck routes and truck prohibited streets in West Oakland. Find the revised proposed truck parking map here and the updated network of truck routes and truck prohibited streets here.
To address community concerns regarding the designation of Frontage Road as a truck route, the City and Port prepared a study to analyze the consequences of designating Frontage Road as a truck route and of designating it as a truck prohibited Street. The Frontage Road Study was presented to the community in October 2021.
The Study found that significant diversion into equity neighborhoods would occur if Frontage Road was banned to trucks, therefore, the City and Port recommend designating Frontage Road as a truck route. The City and Port agreed to continue to work with the community on future design changes to Frontage Road. The Port will lead planning and design of Frontage Road improvements, including identifying resources for the initial planning phase for improvements.
The proposed City Council legislation to update the truck parking regulations and the network of truck routes and truck prohibited streets for West Oakland, is scheduled for discussion at the Public Works Committee of City Council on February 22, 2022.
